Godwin, William Representation (1831)

This corresponds to MS. Abinger c. 30, fols. 87-91. Draft(?) of a ‘Representation to the K[ing]’, as from the House of Commons, on the subject of the Reform Bill, late 1831 or early 1832. Paper watermarked 1830. 5 leaves. The manuscript is partly in note form and styled as a petition from the House of Commons to William IV. Begun two days after the Lords had rejected the Bill for parliamentary reform, it insists that the Commons have been given a popular mandate for reform and that the Bill must be passed.
