Derry at four o'clock p.m. I engaged a seat to Enniskillen upon the Fair Trader or, as it should be styled, the Foul Trader. At first it drove on at a rapid rate carrying about 28 passengers, ten inside and eighteen on the outside - noisy and half inebriated fellows. I spread out my umbrella expecting that it would afford some shelter against the wind and rain, but it only served to collect the passing shower and drop it upon my legs and thighs and into my shoes. Before we reached Strabane my feet had got benumbed   with cold. At Strabane I descended to get a glass of whiskey but I was obliged to give up and ascend again. I was, however, done out of my former seat and there was no regaining it except by force of arms. Bad as my former seat was I was now thrown into a worse one: on the tip top of a trunk that towered magnificently over the level of the upper seats on the Fair Trader. Delightful seat! Here I became the sport of every squall - the victim of the rain !
All was well and our company very noisy hut when we had arrived within two yards of Seein Bridge, between Strabane and Newtownstewart, the lofty vehicle was thrown into the ditch! The driver had let the right wheel slip into the ditch, within two yards of a dangerous and steep bridge! ...
If the vehicle had advanced about three yards further we would have been dashed to death against, and over the bridge... I went to bed and got up at half past five in the morning ... I went down to the Coach Office at about 5 .45a.m. hut the coach on which I had engaged a seat had started a quarter of an hour early and I missed the seat for which I had paid.
