In a letter dated 1st June 1864 by Amos Barnard :-
Sir.
I keep the Cross-keys in Wymondham and always strive to conduct my business in an orderly manner, so that nobody may have any cause to complain. I think now, however, that I have reason to complain myself.
A short time since I was summoned before the magistrates on a charge of allowing drunkenness in my house and was fined for it and yet, Sir, the fact is, that I never allow drunkenness in my house at any time, because drunken folks are a nuisance and of no use. On the occasion alluded to, some parties came to my house that were drunk already, seeing which, I refused to take any orders from them and turned them out as quick as I could. They made a great noise outside, when the police found them there, and I was charged with allowing them to get drunk, which I am able to prove was not the case. Had I acted differently and suffered them to remain, very likely it would not have been found out, but as I got rid of them as quick as I could I got fined for it. I do not call this justice, Sir; pray do you? If the magistrates had not settled the business so quick, I could have got witnesses up to have proved that what I have stated are facts.
I remain, Sir, your obedient servant........l
