Notes: 1796
The village of Llanarth is equally miserable with the preceding [Aberaeron]. The landlady of the inn, as it was called, being from home, it was with great difficulty that we could appease our hunger; there being only a single white roll in the place, and the barley bread, which they offered us, as their own usual provision, being really not eatable with our palates.
