uide on the occasion, for personal vanity was Hunt’s besetting sin. Hunt, instead of encouraging the very constitutional object of the meeting—to petition Parliament for the repeal of the obnoxious law—treated the petitioning that House as ridiculous, and persuaded the excited people to put their sentiments into the form of a remonstrance to the Prince Regent. The meeting then dispersed quietly; but Hunt found occasion to keep himself in the public eye there a little longer. Some officers 杭州桑拿验证 of the 7th Hussars, who were posted at Manchester, treated him rudely as he appeared at the theatre, asserting that when “God Save the King” was called for, he hissed. Whether he did so or not, the conduct of the officers answered his purpose of making political 杭州不正规spa在哪 capital; he wrote to the Commander-in-Chief, the Duke of York, and


then sent his letter to the newspapers. Still more, he wrote to Samuel Bamford to support him in a scheme which was particularly calculated to produce riot and bloodshed, and in this case Bamford did not exercise his usual good sense. At Hunt’s 杭州桑拿水疗会所 suggestion—to select a dozen stout fellows, and appear on the evening of the following Monday in the pit of the theatre, armed with stout cudgels, to inflict a summary chastisement on the officers in case of a second demonstration of their feelings—Bamford appeared 杭州不正规洗脚店里面什么样 at the time appointed with ten stout, picked fellows, with knotty cudgels, marching along the streets to the theatre.

It was not his fault that all went off quietly.

In May the gingham-weavers of Carlisle and that neighbourhood held a similar gathering, 杭州丝袜上门 and in June meetings were held on Hunslet Common, near Leeds, at Glasgow, Ashton-under-Lyne, and other places. The meeting at Glasgow, on the 16th of June, was held on the Green, and amounted to thirty or forty thousand people. They complained of the low wages for cotton-weaving, and proposed a petition to the Prince Regent, praying that he would enable them to get over to Canada, promising that all such as received that favour should repay the outlay by yearly instalments. But the bulk of the assembly protested against emigration, asserting that the remedy for their 杭州带服务的洗浴中心 distresses lay in annual parliaments, universal suffrage, and the consequent reduction of taxation; and they proposed that they should march up to London in a body, and present their petition to the Prince Regent in person. At Ashton the chair was taken by the Rev. 杭州龙凤桑拿按摩论坛 Joseph Harrison, and the strange creature called Dr. Healey, of whom Bamford gives
