Coal whippers

Wednesday Feb. 24

Mr. Alderman Wood presented a petition from the coal whippers of the City of London, complaining of the conduct of their masters, the coal undertakers, many of whom kept public-houses, and if the whippers did not spend in those houses more than they wished to spend, discharged them from their employment.
