Drop-head title. Docket title reads 'In Parliament. On the Part of the Commissioners of Sewers for Westminster and Part of Middlesex. Observations On The Proposed Paddington Canal. Chippindall, Solicitor, ...'. Undated. Watermark: '1808'. The text refers to several acts passed from 'the Act of the 23d Henry VIIIth' to 'the 47th George IIId.' [i.e. 1 December 1806--1 March 1807]. The 'Observations' are written in objection to the 'Bill for forming a Canal round the whole of the Metropolis North of the River Thames from Paddington to Limehouse' to join the Grand Junction Canal to the London docks, entailing the interruption of a main sewer line and the destruction of the main system of drainage in west London. Despite objections, the Regent's Canal Act was passed in 1812.
