Extract from letter 5/10/1872 from Geo Whitley

Speke Town Cottages

            James Cartwright called on me last night to inform me of a most disgraceful outrage which has been perpetrated by some evil disposed person or persons on the cottage lately occupied by John Wyke from which I was compelled to turn him out in consequence of the persistence in working at Garston and coming to reside at Speke, he was in the employ of Cartwright and they differed about the rate of wages. Immediately on the cottage becoming vacant Cartwright locked the doors and had the windows boarded up, in spite of this however the scoundrels broke into the house, smashed most of the windows and did all the damage they well could. I fear there is little chance of discovering them but I will offer a reward of £5 for their discovery. I went there this morning and made enquiries amongst the neighbours but could not gain any information. I am sorry to see such a bad spirit abroad.

            These cottages and Thos. Ireland’s near them are positively in a most disgraceful state and if seen will be reported to the local board as unhealthy and unfit for habitation, some of the walls are literally nothing but clay and straw mixed.
