Minutes of 'Loyal Britons' meeting, Lambeth, December 1793

Like the Society of Loyal Britons in Southwark (see above), the loyalists in Lambeth were determined to preserve the 'invaluable' and 'glorious' constitution of Great Britain. Their fears about the possibility of revolution spreading to Britain from France are reflected in their resolution to prosecute anyone found 'circulating inflammatory papers, pamphlets or conversations' likely to 'promote disorder or otherwise endanger the peace of civil society'.
