From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General
Advertiser, Saturday 27 February, 1841. Price 5d.
One day this week some mischievous wag sent written orders to the
various spirit merchants in Dover, to send, on the following morning,
various quantities of brandy, rum, gin &c. to the new Temperance Hotel,
on Liverpool Terrace, with instructions to wait for their money. The
consequence was, that the house was at one time regularly besieged with
carts, porters, and "evil spirits;" but it will be seen by our
advertising columns, that Mr. Horsenaill had issued a "caution" to
prevent a repetition of the annoyance.
