|This letter to Sir Charles Napier recounts the serious unrest in
Carlisle during the canvassing of candidates for a forthcoming election.
Napier was the military commander for the north of England, an area
rife with Chartist activity. Although Napier sympathised with the
Chartist cause he was firm in upholding the law against protests that
often became violent.
