28th May 1813

Was the May fair.  The town was very throng, the day was fine.  There was a few quarrels as usuall, some broken heads and Black eyes.

The Cattle Market in the morning was considerable and the Horse Market was also well attended.  Horses and cows fetched high prices.

The latter part of the month was very fine warm weather but markets are still very high, the Butcher meat in particular being as high as 9½ per lib.
