At a General Meeting of the CHEMISTS and DRUGGISTS in the Metropolis, held in pursuance of Public Advertisements, at the Free-Mason's Tavern, Queen Street, Lincoln's Inn Fields, on Thursday last, the 4th instant, to take into Consideration - 'An Abstract of a Bill for regulating the practice of Apothecaries...........'.

pp. 3, (i) blank. A single sheet folded to four pages, folded horizontally, the first and last pages a bit dusty at the edges and in the folds, internally clean, a small tear in the lower margin of the second leaf with loss though not affecting text.

*This Meeting was called to fiercely oppose what eventually [1815] became the Apothecaries Act - the printing is undated, but the paper is watermarked for 1810. With W. B. HUDSON in the Chair, the Meeting passed four resolutions : 1] The Bill contains many Clauses deeply injurious to the Chemists and Druggists and to the Public at large; 2] They consider it highly important to oppose this Bill in all its stages; 3] That a Committee be chosen - this included Messrs. Allen, Plough Court, Cole, Newgate Street, Savory, Bond Street, and 10 others; 4] A subscription be entered into for defraying expences.
