John Cassell (1817–1865), who was in turn a carpenter, temperance preacher, tea and coffee merchant, finally turned to publishing. His first publication was on 1 July 1848, a weekly newspaper called The Standard of Freedom advocating religious, political, and commercial freedom. The The Working Man's Friend became another popular publication. In 1849 Cassell was dividing his time between his publishing and his grocery business.
