Trade at this time (about 1842) became very depressed for a long time and people got thoroughly tired out with it […]. I have previously mentioned about trade being bad in the Colne district, all being hand-loom weaving. I used to spin a great quantity of weft for these people, but after they stopped, the people removed to various parts of the country, and some were out of work for a long time. I have seen gangs of 6 or 8 men parading through our village street singing, and begging. I have forgotten the words they used, but the tune they sang was very solemn.
