Scope and Content

A letter on paper headed Manchester City News [probably by JHN] to an unnamed recipient. In response to criticism of a series of articles by Joseph Scott that had appeared in the Manchester City News [under the title "Leaves from the Diary of a Citizen's Auditor"], the author supports the basis of Scott's attack upon Manchester City Council, whilst regretting the manner in which those views had been expressed. [This seems to be a draught version of JHN's reply to the letter [JHN/1/118/2] sent to JHN by Joseph Thompson, one of those attacked by Scott; see also JHN/4/2 on this subject].

Dated at: Manchester.
