Notes: 1796
The Black Bull is the lead Inn where we are. The attendance and entertainment good and the Bill reasonable, notwithstanding it was a fair and Market Day, add too that it was an electioneering one. The populace swilling in cwrw, dead drunk or embroiled in quarrels, their Welsh Blood boiling with drink and party feuds and flowing plentifully from their broken Pates. The candidates were the Colonels Vaughan and Johns.’
