Chatteris reader's social history lesson




Regarding the ‘insult’ over plans for the Quaker Meeting House at Chatteris. Or should we say “the society of friends” meeting house?

Here’s a social history lesson for you. The Quakers are a very old and respectable establishment. In their beliefs you are born a “free man”.

Many of the Quakers’ beliefs are that “man was born free in the eyes of God”, they also believe in “freedom of speech”, but don’t believe in “rank, file and number” as they and their fellow brothers are all equal. “Personal wealth” and material gain are of no significant or social importance.
