DESCRIPTION Letter from Sir Arnold Knight to W. B. Badnall? dated 4 April 1855. He was staying at 50 Rue de Soubise, Dunkerque, France and the letter concerns a London & N.W. Railway Dividend warrant which he had posted to Challinor & Shaw. The letter goes on to say that "all are well" and that he liked Dunkirk very much - " I never felt better in my life the atmosphere is most salubrious, and there are some very delightful places in the neighbourhood." "The town is one of the cleanest I was ever in not excepting the cleanest towns in England. There are none of those accumulated heaps of seething corruption which in the drains, the cess-pools and the church yards of English towns contaminate the soil, impregnate the water and poison the atmosphere. The air here is bright, clear and pure: the commerce is improving and the town thriving, but the War has checked its progress, as it had a rapidly growing trade with the Northern Ports. There is no display of wealth, you seldom see a private carriage: there is of course Poverty but we see very little of rags, or destitution. I have read a word of betwixt 400 & 500 folio pages on it. We frequently walkover the ground where the Duke of York was encamped, when he besieged Dunkirk. You are aware he made a most unaccountable retreat, which they say here was the more unaccountable because on that day the Duke was not drunk. The bones of thousands of our fellow countrymen are embedded in the suburbs: in one battle alone above six thousand of the Anglo-Flemish Army were slain. There has been no slaughter like this in any of the battles of the Crimea. During the wars betwixt England & France Dunkirk damaged our shipping extremely by her Privateers hence when we made peace with Louis XIV one condition was that the harbour at Dunkirk should be destroyed. The inhabitants have never forgiven us, for though some years ago a violent storm opened out a new channel still the harbour is very inferior to what it formerly was. The Protestant Clergyman here is a great friend of mine . I was spending last evening with him, a fine old gentleman, 82 years old was there, he came to Dunkirk 40 years ago and finding it to agree with him so well has remained here ever since. But though the place is very agreeable as a residence, it is not suited for Excursionists: it is too quiet, or for sea bathing; the sea is too far off- the shore too flat, and consequently the Water too shallow. I am very glad the Beauchief branch of my family did not come it would not have suited them. Give my love to Minnie and Aunt Margt. and kind regards to all my friends...."

DESCRIPTION Letter from Sir Arnold Knight to W. B. Badnall? dated 8 September1855. He was staying at 50 Rue de Soubise, Dunkerque, France and the letter concerns shares which were the personal property of the late John Cruso. It states that those remaining in his name are those which belonged to the late Mr. & Mrs. J. C. and were so invested at their request, as Trustee under their marriage settlement. Discusses aspects of these investments. Sir Arnold reminds Challinor of the cost of postage "Will you recollect when you have to write again that the postage /4d/ must be prepaid, or we are charged double here /8d/. The English penny stamp is of no use moreover if the weight exceed a quarter of an oz, though you put a 4d stamp upon it, we should have to pay sixteen pence on account of its being overweight. You must excuse these details but as we have an extensive correspondence, it amounts to a heavy tax especially when our English friends are unacquainted wioth the rigid regulations of the French Post Office."

Sir Arnold comments on the "fearful animosities engendered by the proceedings of Henry VIII, Oliver Cromwell & William III " and on "the light which modern investigations, with access to documents never before published, has thrown upon the lives of Catherine of Arragon ......." I must be setting off, the Church Bell is ringing. My love to Aunt Margaret and Minnie."

DESCRIPTION 13 items mainly letters from G. S Herbert & Sons, Stock & Share Brokers of 73 Old Broad Street, London E.C. to Jos. Challinor of Leek dating between 23 January 1877 and 26 April 1883. They relate principally to the Badnall Trusts but sometimes mention others such as Sneyd-Kynnersley Trustees(8). Items (1) to (5) concern Midland Railway Company shares and include a letter from the Secretary's Office and stamped receipts of purchase. Occasionally they comment on the stock market -for example "26 April 1883 " we do not think you need to be disturbed by the pamphlet which is issued by  a nest of gamblers who call themselves the "Investors Protection Association". we believe it is quite true that certain "rigging " operations are being carried on, & it is very possible that the operators have 1,200,000 stock in pawn at bankers - But on the other hand it is quite certain that these pamphleteers have sold a large amount they do not possess.....In fact the "riggers" have by pawning the stock to some extent cornered the "bears" who endeavour to supply themselves by frightening the real holder into selling." ---nothing unusual in these speculating operations... always going on.... they are not an unmitigated evil to the real shareholders... Many of the investments concerned railway stock. Mentions (10) North Staffordshire "dividend considered favourable and the traffic this year show an increase of about 3000. We believe the Manager is sanguine in making the line pay 4% but we fancy this will be about the best that can be hoped for. Then there is the question of the absorbtion of the concern by one of the large companies, which might come off any day, though we know nothing of any negotiations at present."
