Wow, I randomly scrolled to page 19 and read the stories of Hatfield and Truelock....very timely today for having occurred 200 years ago.

Hatfield tried to assassinate King George III, and his discontent was fueled by the bizarre counter religious beliefs of Truelock, who wanted to bring about a new order.

Hmmm, familiar.

Bedlam was famous for its misery and chaos. That book's preface made it seem like a spa.
