These letters graciously have been shared with the Victorian Web by Eunice and Ron Shanahan; they have been taken from their website. The letters give an insight into the daily lives and concerns of 'ordinary' people without whom history would not exist. The letters are a wonderful example of how much history may be gleaned from such sources.
This is the second of two letters from this man, both of which are addressed to Henry Ashworth, The Oaks, Bolton, Lancashire. This letter was sent postage paid and the postal markings are quite different. The first was sent postage unpaid.
