30May1868, Electionums

HAGLEY, May 30th, 1868.
—Talked incessant electionums ; it seems the enemy has been outrageously base and unscrupulous, spending shoals of money among the poor ignorant Black-country people, putting about all sorts of lies, and generally disgracing themselves ; also having 100 paid agents to Charles's 20. They say Laslett must have spent near £20,000 ; our side £6,000 ; a terrible incubus, but we hope it will be raised among friends.
