At Diss a number of labourers in husbandry refused to work at the customary wages, and being out of employment applied to the magistrates, who advised the parish officers to put them to work, which they accordingly did. Their business was to carry bricks in a hod from Palgrave to Diss, a distance of two miles. This medicine had the required effect for afer two days they returned to their previous employment.
