Excerpt from The Preston Guardian, Saturday February 24, 1849
"SUPPER – On Monday evening last, a supper was given to a large party of friends and neighbours by Mr John Wilkins, of The Golden Ball, Longton. The Longton band attended, and, with untiring zeal, kept up a flow of good humour and pleasing enjoyment, by their lively strains during the whole evening. The same liberality was displayed by Mr Taylor, of the Bull Inn, on the same evening."
