TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 8 November 1884

'to the editor.' Sir, — The tradespeople of Balmain are to be oommended for the action they are at present taking in regard to the half -holiday movement. It' was' with some - degree- of- surprise-1 that,' on reading the report of tho committee meet:. ing, in your last issue, I noticed that ona or°two of our principal shopkeepers had re fused to join in this most desirable movement. It is a common saying that ?' it takes all sorts of people to make up a world,' and I will add to it by saying, that, in. my opinion, there are some people. in'Jihisj'wpj'ld who should . never have been born, for they come into it, and all through their lives there is not the slightest attempt on their part to leave it better than they found it. I suppose those few who' will not join the movement- think- that because: they have been engaged in business in Balmain for .so many years, and have done without it (being too primitive to suggest any tiling of tho sort), that therefore there is no need for it' n...
