John Leech Cartoons from Punch magazine
"Am I not a Man and a Brother?" "The anniversary meeting was held yesterday at Exeter Hall. Lord Brougham was to have taken the chair, but the secretary read an extract of a letter from Lord Brougham, dated 'Privy Council, May 16,' stating that 'my being here to preside over the business is necessary, to prevent public inconvenience.' (Cheers and hisses.) " - Examiner.
