Excerpt from Capital and Labour: A Paper Read Before the Literary Section and Gneneral Members of the Nottingham and County Liberal Club, and to Delegates From Operatives Trade Societies

The subject of the paper I am about to read is "Capital and Labour." A very extensive and important subject it is, involving the interest and welfare of every human being. I should not have presumed to address you on so great a theme of my own accord, but having been specially requested to do so, I cheerfully comply, and will do my best to deal honestly and fairly with some of the aspects of the subject which appear to me to be important at the present time; and when I have concluded I hope that I shall have shown a spirit of candour and impartiality which will be a proof of my good intentions. I do not appear as the champion of my own or of any class. I shall not seek to please the great, nor to gain the applause of the multitude. The aim of men in providing and obtaining that which contributes to, and constitutes, temporal welfare, cannot succeed without the co-employment of both labour and capital, which are mutually dependent on each other and their interests are, in the main, identical. I do not mean that it is possible for all antagonisms to cease; I do not think they will or can. It is natural and inevitable that they should arise, but they should be dealt with in a spirit of charity and forbearance on both sides. No lengthened injustice can exist on either side, without those who sow the wind reaping the whirlwind. Unless a fairly just advantage be gained on both sides the one will desert the other, and leave it to its own helplessness. I need not say a word as to the powerlessness of capital without labour, but it is not so needless to ask what labour can do without capital. The ploughman cannot wait until harvest for the food by which he lives.
