1866 Mar 31 Leeds Intelligencer: 29 Mar 1866, Bramley; to the subscribers to the Leeds Unmarried Womens Benevolent Institution. Ladies and Gentlemen. Being again placed on the list of eligible candidates, I regret my infirm health will not permit me to personally solicit your votes. I an now above seventy years of age, without income, in very weak health, and only able occasionally to earn a trifle by sewing to assist my brother in maintaining me, whose school earns but a very small income, arising chiefly from his advanced age. My father , many years since, kept a school in Bramley for boarders and day scholars, when he occupied a small farm in the same township (under Lord Cardigan) for upwards of 50 years at the rent of £52, bur from the misfortune of loans resulting unfavourably, with other heavy losses, and an expensive Chancery suit, totally deprived him of all means of making provision for his family. May I therefor, ask the great favour of your valuable assistance on the day of election. Your humble servant Elizabeth Binns.
