Thomas Palmer in New Inn, Hereford - 29 June, 1784, at night

from A Tour to North Wales, 1784, page 127:

Being both very invalidish from weak nerves and fatigue, we had little discourse or supper, and were eager to retire to an early bed.

    Where we neither of us slept, for I was melted thro' the nightby a copious sweat, and he [Mr Palmer] was disturb'd by noisy songsters.
