We got a comfortable room at the Talbot Inn and ordered some mutton but it may have been goat and we had it replaced by Welsh rarebit the only other eatable to be had. … After retiring to rest, we were serenaded two or three times by a congress of dogs ably supported by all the geese and pigs in the neighbourhood, the dogs in general began the subject and were seconded by the geese who were immediately followed by the base of the pigs forming a fugue; we never ascertained the cause of this attention, but were extremely sorry that the poor animals staid up all night on our account.
