10th July 1813

The first division for the 16 Regiment came into town.  They are on their rout [sic] for Ireland via Port Patrick.  They are about 700 strong and look well.

Fine warm weather with mild showers, attended with some thunder and Lightning.

Two rural Clergymen or itinerant ministers are preaching daily in the streets.  They lay down their hats to receive the Voluntary offerings of their auditors, but it appears that they are but poorly paid for their Sermons.
