The Proposal of Richard Peaudane

I propose a News room for our town. It would enable commercial men as myself to remove ignorance and promote self improvement: a place where new ideas could be discussed, away from the mughouses: where only nonsense is spoken. Clearly, for its upkeep a small charge must be made. More, perhaps for those living outside the toll-bars. Such is the hope for this town that rumours are alive of plans being prepared for the coming of the canal; coaches and packmen being unreliable and prone to attack
from brigands and highwaymen. A News room would show foreign tradesmen that the men of this town have a great hope for its prosperity, and prevent the incidence of rumour that is brought forth through ignorance
