Printed newspaper article of the quarterly meeting of the Sutton Coldfield Town Council. The article explains that Wilkinson W H was a part of a deputation attending before the Council to present a memorial on the matter of 'The Management of the Park'. Reasons against the Town Council's actions included extremely rare insect life, with some specimens never having been collected before except at Sutton Park.

Wilkinson (another of the deputation) said it was not altogether the quantity and quality of the trees but the cutting down of trees which would probably last another hundred years, while those newly planted would require many years to attain such dimensions, if ever they did, which he doubted. They did not object so much to the cutting down of some of the trees as to the reckless and wholesale manner in which it had been done. Inside the envelope WBHERB.WHW.DOC.44
