Fifth Viscount Torrington et al. in Dolgellau - 6 July, 1784

from A Tour to North Wales, 1784, page 147:

The Welsh harper attended, and tho his harp was better yet we preferr’d the performance of the Bala harper, as fuller of execution; one reason of his dull performance, was the fatigue of the preceeding fair.
