Source: The Illustrated London News, June 15, 1850, p.423

A public meeting was held at the Town Hall, Woolwich, on Monday evening last, for the purpose of explaining the principles and objects of this society; Dr. Carlile in the chair; when Mr. J. Duncan at some length exhibited the great and beneficial results which society has every reason to expect—politically and morally—will be effected by the operation of Freehold Land Society, not forgetting to impress upon the audience the value to the individual as an investment of capital and as one of the best kinds of savings-bank, and as inducements to motives of prudence and forethought amongst the industrious classes.
