  Interesting Record: John Bull;

“On the death of Queen Caroline, in the summer of 1821, the circulation of the John Bull fell off very greatly.   As it was for the express purpose of traducing, denouncing, and holding her Majesty up to ridicule in every possible way, that the paper was started , and as she and her friends were, for the intervening nineteen or twenty months, the food on which it lived, it was to be expected that her death would largely diminish the sale of the paper, but still no one could have anticipated that it would fall off in circulation with the rapidity it did” (Grant, 54-63).
