The New Police-c1835/50

Verse 1: ‘I’M one of the new police, egad, / The servant maids declare, / There’s not a chap in all the force, / can sturt with such an air; / My gloves of white, my coat of blue, / My diginity increase, / And every gesture shows to you. / That I’m one of the new police.’ This broadside is not dated and does not carry the name of the publisher or the place of publication. for more click here
