Description

Excerpt from Old Foye Days, Vol. 2: An Authentic Account of the Exploits of the Smugglers in and Around the Port of Fowey

That the polruan mutual improvement society (limited), came into being, that it enjoyed a useful, if all too brief, career; and that it fell into dissolution ere ever the world had come to realise its existence, is all that really need. Be known about it. To be sure, that vigilant watch-dog, the con temporary press, may be searched in vain for any allusion to the Society. But have not. Some of the most momentous revolutions in the world's history been hatched in the quietude of a back parlour? And does not our greatest historian tell us: that the circumstances which have most in?uenced the happiness. Of man kind have bee-n, for the most part, noiseless revolutions?
