Brighton News Story – 20 July, 1795: Prince forbids use of any bread but brown

posted in: Blog, On This Day | 0

On Friday his Royal Highness ordered brown bread be Introduced at his own table and forbade the use of any other among his household.  A example truly worthy of a Prince…. The poor as well as the rich should consider that a brown loaf is better than no loaf, and in order to secure event that till the arrival of harvest, ’tis  indispensibly necessary that the utmost frugality in the use of flour should be observed by EVERYONE.

From The Sussex Weekly Advertiser, 1795
