19th December 1812: Stocking frame broken in Nottingham

In the evening of Saturday 19th December 1812, frame-breaking returned to the town of Nottingham for the first time in months. A single cotton-lace frame was broken by Luddites.

This is from Thomis (1970, p.181) and it is also mentioned in a letter from General Maitland to the Home Office of 24th December 1812.
