6th October 1813

On the second day there was also three races, which were tolerable good ones.  The company were not numerous but there was the ordinary number of Whiskey tents, Wheel of fortune men, blind fidlers, Ballad singers etc etc etc.  The weather was rather soft and inclined to rain.  In the evenings there were Suppers and balls at the two Inns, but none of the Ladies and Gentlemen belonging to the town went to them.
