The last letter was written July 30 1816 by the son Fredric, who describes life in London.

He talks about the poor labour market, about street musicians playing the fife and tabor and dancing at peoples’ doorsteps to earn a living. He also describes how coal miners protested against the prince (who later became George IV) by bringing coal from Cornwall and dumping it on the regent’s doorstep.

“Work is as dead in town as ever
and London is full of countrymen and
they go about with a fife and Tabor and
Dance with bells at their hems at
peoples doors for a livelihood and even
H. Collin droved 3 waggons of Coals to
London themselves from Cornwall as
a present to the prince Regent hoping
that he would take into consideration
the state of the Country”
