Tippling and Sabbath-breaking
Fri 16 Oct 1772: I went round to Bedford. I was sorry to hear from Alderman Parker, that his son-in-law, who succeeded him in the Mayoralty, had broke through all the regulations which he had made, tolerating all the tippling and sabbath-breaking which Mr. P. had totally suppressed! Thus showing to all the world, that he was not "under the law" either of God or man!
