A letter from General Ludd, 8th February 1812

February 8, 2012
No depredations have been committed in Nottinghamshire, by the Frame-breakers for several days past, and it is said the Mayor of Nottingham has received a letter from General Ludd stating, “that no more frames will be destroyed while the Restrictions on the Prince Regent remain in force, which expires on the 19th inst. When it is hoped his Royal Highness will take the distressed situation of trade into his most serious consideration; and if he fails in this, the last hope of redress, the Luddites will destroy every frame they can find in the country.
