10Nov1862, Soup kitchen in Blackburn

HAWARDEN, Monday, November 10th, 1862.

P. of a plan for setting up a soup kitchen in Blackburn, which is the sort of thing best to be done ; for the papers say if the people are not fed now, before the great cold begins, it will kill them, with fever and atrophy coming upon exhaustion and depression of mind and body.
