Like many towns, Horsham had a growing Temperance movement, encouraging everyone to ‘sign the Pledge’.
“A public meeting under the auspices of the Horsham Sisterhood was held at the Albion Hall [Horsham] on Tuesday evening.
“The President alluded with pleasure to the fact that the House of Lords passed the second reading of the Bishop of London’s Sunday Closing Bill unanimously.
“Mr Jury Cramp informed the meeting that the Bishop of London was a tutor at Horsham some years ago and appeared on that very platform. He (the Bishop) signed the Pledge there, so that they could really claim that Horsham started the Bishop of London on his Temperance career.”
