Peter Hawker in Southampton - 20 June, 1840, at night
from Journal entry, 20 June 1840, page 181:
I arrived about seven in the evening, after having encountered a regular uproar, and seen a fine sight, during the three hours I had to wait for the coach in Southampton. It was a grand public breakfast to the Duke of Sussex, on the completion of the railroad; and what with guns, bells, bands, mobs, and processions, the city of London was comparatively quiet to the town of Southampton on this gala day.
