Fifth Viscount Torrington in Church of St Alkmund, Shrewsbury - 21 July, 1793, in the morning
from A Tour to North Wales, 1793, page 234:
According to my intentions of devotion, I enquired for the Church of St. Alkmund (who was he?) where a famous preacher holds forth. So I went soon after ten o’clock; and was shewn into the Corporation seat, (I believe); and well I came early, as the church was crowded to hear their famous preacher.―The service was drowsily perform’d by a sick looking curate. A Psalm, and a hymn were decently sung.
