William Godwin's Diary


The king prorogued both houses of parliament (that is, discontinued the meetings of the legislative bodies without dissolving them). The Times dates the prorogation a day later than Godwin.

See The Times, 22 June 1810 and R.G. Thorne, The Commons 1790-1820, 5 vols (London: Secker and Warburg for the History of Parliament Trust, 1986), vol 1, p. 388.
