The Fourth Edition of the Bromley Directory -will be, or
should be, in the hands of every tradesman in the sixteen
parishes of the Bromley Union, on and after the 1st of 1--- ----------- " '
October, 1868 ., The advantage of having a ready reference
to names of residents in this locality cannot fail to be ap­
preciated by not only every person in business, but also by
residents generally, for without it many would not know the
names of their neighbours, so rapidly has the population
increased of late in some parishes. W ith reference to the
E squires, we admit we may be at fault, and shall be glad
if some gentleman in each parish will undertake to put us
right in the Next Edition, or correct any error they may
happen to notice.
