"A party of ploughmen, decorated with a profusion of ribbons, made an incursion in to Lincoln on Monday last (Plough Monday) and attempted to levy contributions on the citizens in return for the exhibition of their antics. It is time this remnant of old English customs was abolished altogether, as the money begged by the "plough-boys" is spent in drunkenness."
