The battles were successful events: however the pagoda in St James's Park was set alight by fireworks, killing one and injuring another; and the balloon ascent, by James Sadler (1753-1828, the first English balloonist) did not go as planned and he had to make an emergency landing.

A visit of John Howard (1726-90) to a prison, illustrating the conditions he attempted to alleviate, with a poor family, including a breast-feeding mother and a dying old man. Howard was appointed High Sheriff of Bedfordshire in 1773 and, taking his role seriously instead of as a sinecure, inspected the county prison himself. He was so shocked that he spent the rest of his life campaigning for prison reform. His 'The State of the Prisons' was published in 1777. He travelled all over Europe and died in Ukraine, where he was buried. A statue was erected in St Paul's Cathedral, London, the first for a civilian. Originally published by Simpson & Hogg, this is a later state with a new publishers, Darling & Thompson (fl. 1775-98).
