KENTISH TRADESMEN IN THE EARLY NINETEENTH CENTURY. By Elizabeth Melling, B.A. continued

from one place to another, how the ship was supplied with food and how she was refitted in port. Such details as the firing of a twenty-one gun salute on the 30th May, 1810, in honour of the King of Spainís birthday, are noted, or how on the 18th October, 1810, marines were sent on shore to assist in levying contributions on the inhabitants of Cadequees. Here hidden among the petty accounts of

 small local tradesmen lies an enthralling story.
   Apart, however, from items of special note, this whole collection should be of interest to the general economic historian and to the student of local history, and may well present the pattern of lesser business life in an unusual light.
