Address to the People of Bury by Matthew Fletcher

But considering a rigid adherence to truth of the utmost importance in all political discussions, and especially when the character of individuals is implicated, I have waited to be put fully in possession of the facts previous to the publication of any remarks on the conduct of the ruffianly upstarts who have been guilty of the gross outrage of introducing into a peaceful and orderly town a band of hired bludgeon men to insult and abuse the unoffending people.
