‘A Night with the Chartists’ by Barnabas Brough

  • Dorothy Thompson
Part of the History in Depth book series

Abstract

The following extraordinary narration of adventures may appear to ordinary readers as bordering too much on the marvellous, to be easily credited. But a reference to the diurnal press of the period, and but more especially to the ‘Times’ Newspaper, of November the 12th, 1839, or to the published report of the Monmouthshire State Trials, by Messrs Butterworth & Co., Fleet Street, in 1840, will fully show, that nothing but well proved facts, and veritable occurrences, are here related; in fact, such reference will prove them considerably less romantic even than the account given by the usually business-like reporter of the ‘Times.’
