Book Description

ROGERS, Rev. G.A., Vicar of Leominster. A scathing printed open letter to the vicar of Leominster from an unhappy parishioner. Dated 13th May, 1850. It is written in response to his sermon the previous week when he “had the temerity to fall foul upon the Society of Friends... you must be a daring man to attack persons whose benevolence is daily exemplified.” The writer complains about the increase in fees for burials, and states that the vicar’s support of a District Visiting Society “is unjustifiable, there is much of knowing other people’s business connected with this but no inquiry is made into their poverty; a little book without a little charity is useless.... how debasing to a clergyman to cling with pertinacity to a direct falsehood...” Original fold lines, some slight marking but in good condition. Scarce, unrecorded in Copac. 252mm x 202mm. Leominster 1850.
