My last full day – so far!

Today was my first experience with Microfilm. I spent the day on the second floor at Kew, flipping through a number of archived State Papers from the time of the Riots. Compared with yesterday's research on the events in Parliament, it was interesting to see the on-going correspondence of the two weeks from 2nd June 1780 when the riots began was much more alarmed than the plain reporting of facts found in the paper documents!

I didn't manage to find quite as much useful information today alas, with the exception of a number of names of potentially important people who were involved in the petitioning/riots - if I can learn more about them, perhaps through newspaper/pamphlet search, I shall hopefully be able to delve deeper into how these petitions managed to amass quite so many signatories!
