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 letter was written in 1824, by Mr J Roadhouse, of Ely, and addressed to Hurst Esqr. Attorney, Nottingham.
