Letter

Scope and Content

From R. Heywood to F. Baker. Writes to say that he has entered his name in the list for the Flamborough excursion as he prefers the scenes of nature. This in turn has prolonged his stay. Heywood only arrived on Friday, thinking it best to stay to give his vote against granting any new licenses. He describes his time in a temperance hotel and some of the people he encountered. He notes that great objections were made to the new scheme. He describes a talk by a Mr. Neilson and of attending a lecture on photography, in which he fell asleep. Describes going to chapel and listening to a sermon given by a Mr. Ryland as well as some sightseeing he did around the local attractions.

Dated at Hull.
