Excerpt from The Story of Peterloo: Written for the Centenary, August 16, 1919

One of the most valuable of all the individual narratives Is that given by the Rev. Edward Stanley, father of Dean Stanley, and brother of the first Baron Stanley of Alderley, who came upon the scene quite unintentionally and by pure accident, and watched the proceedings from beginning to end from the room immediately above that in which the magistrates were assembled. Stanley was at the time Rector of Alderley he afterwards became Bishop of Norwich. His testimony - which was accompanied by a small sketch-plan - is specially valuable because he was pre-eminently a statistician he be came, indeed, one of the first Presidents of the Manchester Statistical Society. Moreover, he saw everything from the point of View of a stranger from outside; and his effort to be impartial and to confine himself to measured language is almost laboured.
