Aytoun, The Friend of the People!!

This ballad begins: ‘Come all Reformers of the Town, / Since Jeffrey now has got the Gown, / And pitch your voice to the highest tone, / To sing huzza for Aytoun.’ It was advertised as a new song and was to be sung to the tune of ‘Arethusa’. A coat of arms with the motto, ‘without fear and without reproach’, adorns the top of the sheet. for more click here
