Fifth Viscount Torrington in Northampton - 7 June, 1790
from A Tour in the Midlands, 1790, page 154:
Pass Woburn; drag thro’ the sands; change horses near Newport: and, after a tedious crawl, reach Northampton at 8 o’clock. […] Here were quarter’d the Nthn. Regiment, whose drums rattled the Retreat with unusual clamour: surely these noises must be a sad, and dangerous nuisance.
