"Plough Monday brought to Lincoln the annual fooleries of the morris-dancers, and two or three bands of scarmouches were performing in various parts of the city, and levying "black mail" upon the inhabitants without interruption. After one band a train of two or three hundred boys followed, shouting and bawling at "Moll with the broom". Other beggars, who are a far less nuisance are taken up and punished."
