The Loyal Reformers Gazette, based out of Glasgow, was a small grassroots publication instrumental in the passing of the Scottish Reform Bill of 1832. The Gazette was one of the leading periodicals providing low-wage workers with critical information concerning the bill, making the paper hugely influential in the creation of class consciousness at the time. Provides information about the nature of radicalism in Scotland. With the help of some influential allies such as Francis Jeffrey and Earl Grey the paper helped to lead Scottish radicalism with a strong sense of unionist-nationalism and loyalty to the King. Index at rear, followed by "Debate in the House of Lords, on the Second Reading of the Reform Bill, Monday, October 1831" and "An Address Delivered to the Members of the New Mechanics' Institution, Manchester, on the Necessity of an Extension of Moral and Political Instruction Among the Working Classes."
