William Godwin's Diary


The Guildhall is located off Cheapside in the City of London, and is the centre for city Government, administration, and regulations. It is the base of the Lord Mayor of London and the Corporation of London, and the seat of the Court of Common Council and Aldermen. Godwin visited once in 1792, and then more frequently from 1805 onwards, and may well have been consulting the Guildhall library and records for his books on the Phillipses and the Commonwealth.
