AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The Freeman's Journal reproduces an article from the Tamworth Examiner that covers Henry Parkes's speech in Kiama in relation to the Treason Felony Act. The Examiner questions Parkes's honesty in his quotations from the British journal, The Spectator, which had questioned the sanity of those, like Parkes, who supported the legislation.

The Examiner reports that Parkes, in his denunciation of the Spectator's views, led his Kiama constituents to believe that he was quoting from the Spectator's leading article when he was actually using extracts from a letter to the editor.
