They are generally undated; her unpopularity dates from the introduction of the Reform Bill; attacks on Lord Howe began in May 1831. See Croker Papers, 1884, ii. 118-20. Cf. No. 16925. The King is still represented as a Reformer, cf. Nos. 16682, 16839. For the pantomime cf. No. 16930; cf. also No. 16939.
