At Pembridge, Hereford, the Union agent sent the crier round to announce a meeting. A farmer named Abel met him and took his bell away, and would not allow him to "cry". The poor crier, being blind, of course could not resist.. I wonder how a poor man would fare who had dared to do such a thing in order to prevent a farmer's sale? (p. 2)
