<p style='text-align: justify;'>Journal-letter from John Dickenson to his wife Mary née Hamilton. He describes his frustrations in Plymouth on 30 September, visiting the Marine Barracks on Muster Day, so that he cannot hear 'a very fine Band of Music much boasted of', having to wait for a place on the mail coach to Bath as the best way to get to Clifton, and then missing another coach. He asks that their daughter Louisa send him £5, as he is low on funds. He discusses a conversation the previous evening about water excursions on the River Plym, before narrating his visit to Mount Edgcumbe earlier that day (see HAM/1/2/53). He also describes a massive breakwater under construction across Plymouth Sound.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 15.</p>
