16Dec1863, Spade Makers Strike

HAGLEY, Wednesday, December 16th, 1863.
—They say it lightened early this morning. I wrote a long letter to M. Did district, where I found distress, owing to a strike among the spade makers. Sum-total I have collected there in the yr, mostly monthly pennies, 18s. 11½d.
