Excerpt from William Dawson: The Yorkshire Farmer and Eloquent Preacher

Luke Dawson stands before us in faint but clear out line, a man of strong sense though feeble constitution, single hearted, steadfast, content to do good work for small pay.

Neither my father nor myself,' said William in later life, were equally remunerated for our time and pains as agents of Sir Thomas Gascoigne. My father never had more than twelve shillings per week, and coals and candles allowed. I had twelve shillings per week till 179 3, when the wages of the colliers were raised, and then I had fifteen shillings. The colliers struck again, about a year or two after this, when another advance took place, and my wages were raised to eighteen shillings per week. Thus, my father and myself served the Gascoigne family for a period of nearly forty years, for what I have stated.' It would be small matter for wonder that the colliers struck,' if their earnings were as small in proportion to their work as those of the agent. Luke Dawson, however, did not strike,' and apparently did not complain, retaining his poorly-paid office to his life's end, and so discharging it as to earn the entire confidence of his employer.
