    Introduces a long extract from an unspecified source, describing the great benefits enjoyed by workers in Joseph E Schneider's ironworks in Creusot. The extract praises its decent accommodation, gardens, streets, running water, free schools for children and adults, broad ranging educational curriculum (including languages and scientific subjects), nurseries for children, a well-stocked school library, two Catholic churches, facilities for Protestant worship, decent wages, a savings bank, and lower crime rates than average. Suggests that these facilities are better than those provided by 'the greatest and best-managed English iron-works'.
