The New Lamps for the Fire Engine

I say, £3.10 shillings for a pair of new lamps for our fire engine!

Well might several of our Parish Council estate was too much!

I should think that a pair of good lamps ought be got for about half this amount. What do you think?

As to what to do with the old ones?

I should lend them to our postal authority to light the yard with, until they break through the large amount of “red tape” which seems to bind them so tightly that they cannot move.
