Jacob Watson kept a respectable public house, and his eldest son was manager of a brewery. William Wilson, his neighbour in the minister’s gallery, was a keen temperance man and a personal teetotaller; and so in this meeting (as at Thirsk) Friends were divided on this question. Jacob Watson is reported to have said to William Wilson, “Thou makest my trade not respectable, I’ll not deal with thee at thy shop any more”.

Mr. WATSON said—Mr Friend seemed to have been contriving all evening to get him upon his legs. He thanked them for the hearty manner in which they had drunk his health. They had a nice little hunt in Allendale, with good ground to hunt upon, and excellent hounds. He trusted their wishes would be realized, that they might have a good season.
