Thomas Spencer (1796-1853) "writer on social subjects; fellow of St. John's college, Cambridge, 1823; became a zealous social reformer in his curacy of Hinton Charterhouse, 1826-47; a keen opponent of slavery, the corn laws, intemperance, and pauperism; published pamphlets."--Concise DNB p1227. In this pamphlet the author objects to taking the collection requested by the Queen for several reasons, among them being that raising money for the teaching of the church catechism in school was not appropriate for a national school which would have dissenters in them, etc.
