"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."
