A pro-railway broadside stating 'We cannot have a canal! and without great exertions what are we to content ourselves with? Why a Railroad – the produce of jealousy and opposition… I persuade myself... that the plan is so arranged that the town of Stockton will never receive a shovelful of Coals at a lower rate than heretofore… You ask, what alternative have we? I’ll tell you – spiritedly support the plan for a Northern Rail-road, which is the only means left you of going directly into the coal field.’ Signed ‘A Stockton Tradesman’. Printed by T. Eeles, Stockton. Docket title.
