Webb and Son’s debt’, Webb noted to another treasurer in 1891, but he refused to take any payment that could instead be directed to the Evicted Tenants Fund. 94 In spite of the Webbs’ business’ obvious reliance on Quaker interests, they were not model Quaker employers. Many of Webb’s Quaker contemporaries translated their religious ethos into their business models and cast themselves as paternalistic employers who saw it as their mission to care for both the temporal and spiritual well-being of their employees.
Unfortunately, it is difﬁcult to contextualise this grotesque feature of the Webbs’ home life. 46 Besides, an actual severed head is a step beyond Gothic literary tropes of monsters in Big Houses. 47 She also explains that taxidermy had evolved into a ‘perfectly acceptable hobby for young ladies’ in the mid-Victorian era and these ladies were encouraged to create items for display in the parlour, such as screens made from the wings and head of dead birds. ’48 However, Logan makes no mention of stuffed human heads on display in curio cabinets, and Webb’s description of the Sheares head does not suggest that it was trussed up to serve as decoration.
Brown, an American Slave was printed by Webb in 1849. Like Douglass, Brown stayed at the Webb home on his visit to Dublin and was introduced to the Webbs’s circle of friends. A number of other short tracts relating to the anti-slavery cause appear in the bill book. Ironically, the Webbs were at their busiest during Ireland’s greatest economic disaster in the nineteenth century, the Famine. 82 Over the next few years tens of thousands of circulars were printed for the Central Relief Committee of the Society of Friends – 12,000 alone in July 1848.
