Ealing and Brentford Volunteer Corps. Extract from the minutes of the committee, August 8, 1803, Lieut. Col. Drinkwater, in the chair. ...

Brentford Norbury, printer, [1803].
3, [1] p. ; 34.2 cm. (2°)

Drop-head title. Docket-title reads 'The Speech Of Thomas Macdonald, Esq. ...'. The meeting (q.v.) resulted in the establishment of the Ealing and Brentford Volunteer Corps, which was dissolved in 1806. See Thomas Faulkner, The history and antiquities of Brentford, Ealing, & Chiswick, Payne and Foss, 1845. Soane would not have heard this address as he was actively engaged at home in Bloomsbury with the establishment of a similar volunteer corps for the United Parishes of Saint Giles and Saint George's Bloomsbury (q.v.).
