Among the incidents recounted are the death by suicide of one of his men during an assignment to transport ammunition (ff. 8-11); [George W. Stone] performing Electro-Biology [i.e. hypnotism] experiments on some of his men (ff. 26 verso, 29 verso-30); several visits to the Great Exhibition in London (ff. 39 verso-43 verso passim); attending the Cork garrison races, [21] April 1852 (ff. 86-87 verso); and a riot by paupers at Cork workhouse, [9] May 1852 (f. 90 recto-verso). Vaughan assisted in keeping order during the Cork County by-election in March 1852 (ff. 82-83) and in Cork City at the General Election in July 1852 (ff. 102 verso-103 verso). His main preoccupation in open season is fox hunting and shooting game (ff. 49 verso-84 verso passim). A memo found loose within the volume, dated 31 July 1852 with additions to 1855, has been tipped in inside the back cover (f. 122, see also f. 109).
