"The vagaries of the farming men and boys on Plough Monday are, it
is, hoped, going out of fashion. Very few "plough-witches" troubled
the inhabitants of Stamford on Monday last, and the nuisance might be
altogether suppressed if householders and shop-keepers would generally
refuse to countenance their begging. What the fellows obtain is
generally spent in drink."
