Admission tickets : Westminster Hall, 1793 May 23-1794 May 30.

A collection of four engraved admission tickets to the trial of Warren Hastings for the 75th, 116th, 136th, and 141st days in Westminster Hall, each signed by (presumably) the chamberlain for the day -- Chedworth, Somerset, Darlington, Dorchester. Two are printed in black ink, another in blue, and the fourth in green ink; they all carry seals. Three contain comments in a contemporary hand about the day's proceedings praising Hasting's Sir Robert Dallas's defense, commenting on the fact of Mr. Pitt's reply, and evaluating Edmund Burke's remarks on his second day of speeches. Three of the tickets have been torn in the corner, possibly when the bearer entered the hall?
