“Met Luke Yorke lighting lamp opposite St Giles Church.  He has been doing very well since I last saw him, having had a situation of inspector of gas with above £100 a year; but his security Mr Pitcher failed, which threw him out of office, but was recommended by the company to another company as lamplighter at about 25s per week.”
