They [the Duke of Somerset and Mr Mitchel] were here on our grotesque Whitsun- Monday anniversary, connected, time immemorial, with the charter of our city.—It is the vulgar jubilee of the town and its environs. Guns are fired over every house;—gaudy morris-dancers caper in the thronged streets;—emblematic figures, and garlands, are carried on poles;—meat, cakes, and wine, are given gratis, under awnings;—drums, and tabors, and fiddles, are dinning amid the crowd, 

“And all is riot and rude merriment.”

 […] I always immure myself at home through that day, and my domestics leave me, to partake of amusements better suited to their taste than mine.
