Excerpt from The Grocery Trade, Vol. 1: Its History and Romance In a recently published biography of a great writer, the word "Grocer" is referred to as a term of reproach, signifying a "Philistine," or "one who fears the light." In this volume it is my object to show that not only is the grocer a most important member of the community, but that his trade can challenge comparison with any other calling in the matter of the number of men of eminence in Politics, Literature, Philanthropy and Civic Life, who have sprung up from its ranks. No less a personage than His Majesty King Henry VIII. honoured the trade by accepting the Freedom of the Worshipful Company of Grocers, while many of our nobility could trace descent from ancestors who purveyed groceries. I little thought when I began the attempt to compile a reliable record of a great trade, that so many difficulties would have to be encountered; neither had I anticipated the extent to which the fascination attached to the work of research would grow, as obstacle after obstacle was surmounted and new facts were brought to light.
