Points out that the poor need to be fed before they can be educated and announces the formation of a new 'Humane Society' for 'providing weekly dinners for poor children', a society conducted by Anthony A Cooper (7th Earl of Shaftesbury) which aims to improve the health and powers of children through provision of 'good solid dinners'.
