LETTER TO THE EDITOR. The FRIDAY AFTERNOON HOLIDAY. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chroaicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 25 April 1868

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, THE FRIDAY AFTERNOON HOLIDAY.   To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle.   SIR— In perusing your issue of Wednesday last, I   observed an intimation from Messrs. Kittson, Hopper, and Hartley, drapers, of this city, that they will keep their premises open for the future on Friday afternoon.   I cannot allow this intimation to pass unnoticed, as,   from the long hours which the assistants, both male and female, have to remain, one afternoon in the week should   be allowed them for recreation. As the ladies of New- castle have the power of allowing their sympathy with the assistants (who are kept on their foot from Monday Morning till Sunday morning, as the drapers never close on Saturday night), they can do so by patronising the shops which study the health and comfort of their assis- tants. I am in no way connected with any drapery establishment whatever, and think that if the half- h...
