    Responds to a testimonial supporting the guardians of the Farnham Poor Law Union Workhouse signed by the Bishop of Winchester and ratepayers and residents in and around Farnham. Asks John Bright to denounce signatories for their ignorance, and challenges the proposal of the guardians' supporters to raise a subscription for the chairman of the Farnham Poor Law Union board. Concludes by suggesting that the most suitable testimonial for this individual would be a copy of the New Testament (in order to raise his morality) and the Lancet's damning report of the workhouse.
