In a letter dated 7th July 1856, Charles Mackney responded to a statement made the previous week by Superintendant English that the Exmouth Tavern was as disgraceful a house as any in the city. Mackney protested that his house was carried on respectably and very different to many Norwich houses. No gambling or vice was encouraged and his livelihood was obtained by perseverance, hard work, playing musical instruments and singing, every evening, to his customers.
He only allowed the working classes to be present as a recreation from the toils of the day.
He found Mr. English unjust in trying to deprive him of his living and to defame his character, which had never before been tainted.


Not found after 1856.
