Fifth Viscount Torrington in Eaton Socon - 19 June, 1791
from Tour into Lincolnshire, 1791, pages 316–317:
Another reason of my present haste was a resolution to go to evening service; (to pray for better weather, and a healthy pleasant tour;) so I […] devoutly march’d into the church; which is large, and handsome; and has been adorn’d with much stain’d glass.―The psalm singing, in a singing gallery, was tolerable, accompany’d by a flute and a hautboy: but such a reader, and preacher, as Mr L[ittlehale]s I hope is not often heard; tho’ I fear so!
