Example text

Extant are two unfinished manuscripts, entitled ‘Parts of Alfred’ and ‘Darius’s Feast’, which display a penchant for the heroic epic poem made fashionable by Scott and the Romantics. 3 Sadler did not, however, possess much artistic talent. 5 Sadler’s first political tract was ‘An Apology for the Methodists’, published in 1797. This was addressed to the vicar of Doveridge, Rev. Henry Stokes, who had sought to discredit Sadler and his family for their involvement with the Methodists. 6 The Methodists ‘had first appeared in the neighbourhood [of Uttoxeter] in our grandfather’s day’, wrote Howitt, and this through a respectable family of the name of Sadler, dwelling at the old Hall in the near-lying village of Doveridge.

8 The family joined with those devout and zealous members of the Anglican church who had welcomed the Methodists’ influence in regenerating its spiritual and moral energy. 9 The turn of the century marked a watershed in Sadler’s life. Its closing years were marred by the unexpected death, first of his mother and then of his father. On the death of his wife, James Sadler decided that it was time for his youngest son to learn more about the world beyond Doveridge. Sadler left home to join Benjamin in Leeds and, under his guidance, soon became acquainted with the world of trade and commerce.

35 In 1813, he spoke of ‘Spiritual Tyranny, of Priestly Domination, destroying the native freedom of the soul and freezing up its faculties – ’Tis dumb amaze and list’ning terror all! 37 John Foxe’s Book of Martyrs (1563) had left an indelible impression on Protestants from all Sadler’s Social System 45 walks of life. 38 Sadler grew to manhood as the war raged against France. Indeed, it could be argued that war was the ever-present reality as his view of the world took shape.
