Caroline Powys in Fawley Court, Buckinghamshire - 6 January, 1789
from Diary of Caroline Powys, 6 January 1789, page 237:
Tenants’ annual feast at Fawley Court. We were there together with other principal tenants. The young people all as usual danced with the tenants six or eight dances; then we came up to cards and supper. The day always passes very agreeably, as it gives pleasure to see so many people all so happy. Many clever songs were sung by the gentlemen as well as farmers, and droll toasts given after dinner.
