Mock Newspaper

Bedfordshire Archives

A partisan (pro-Polhill) satirical publication from the press of the Bedford printer, C. B. Merry, for the Bedford election of 1830. As the newspaper editor Richard Muggeridge suggested, the text was 'published in the shape, and preserved all the forms of a newspaper'.
