29th March 1811: frame breaking at Mansfield

Only 3 days after the broaching of the agreement between the hosiers and framework knitters, it was reported that more frames were broken at Mansfield.1

1. Thomis (1970, p.177). Once again, there are no solid references for this other than Thomis' timeline, and it is presumably sourced from Conant & Baker's report to the Home Office of February 1812.
