Refuge for Rogues
Discusses a recent address given to the Social Science Association by Henry Letheby. Notes Letheby's evidence for food adulteration and his description of the way that 'in the olden times' traders convicted of adulterating their articles were forced to expose their shady practices in public, were placed in the pillory, and then had their trading license revoked. Concludes by regretting that this practice has been stopped.
