PORTER'S PLIGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 24 January 1914
PORTER'S PLIGHT A special committee of four mem bers of the Battle (Sussex) Board of Guardians has bcen appointed to make a searching inquiry into the question of the workhouse porter's trousers, af ter six months' constant service, were pronounced bl)yond repair. In April on the advice of a Local Go vernment Board inspector, the Battle guardians decided to put William George Parker, the porter, into uniform in order to maintain the dignity of the ancient town. They invited tenders and voted £3, and in due course Parker appeared in all the glory of blue and brass, an ornament to the position he has held for ten years. But time and fate dealt unkindly with part of his uniform, and to save the dignity of Pattle he asked for a new pair of trousers. A few days ago the guardians met to discuss the matter, but, like Parker's trousers, the meeting was divided, and the trouser amendment, moved by L.ady Mabelle Egerton, was defeated by one vote. Lady 1Mahelle Egerton, one of Park er's champi...

I was losing strength daily, and what made me full of fear was that the prison officials were plainly anxious that I should die in my cell. I prayed God to let me live until the trial, and I tried to eat, although the food was awful. "Another prisoner put in my cell was a Pole, who had been sentenced to eighteen years in Siberia. I saw at once that he was a man of the better class, with education. He talked about nothing except his innocence. I told him the tragedy of my own life, and when I had finished he replied, 'Al though I am a Pole and a Christian, I know that there is no such thing as ritual murder among the Jews.'
