The Great City Meeting at Guildhall - (Exterior), 1850. '...a meeting was held in the Guildhall, [in London], which was crowded to excess...Mr. Masterman moved the first resolution, declaring the recent conduct of the Pope unjustifiable, and an unprecedented interference with her Majesty's supremacy...Mr. Cummings moved the second resolution, expressing a belief that the nation owed all its greatness, under Divine Providence, to its deliverance from the ecclesiastical dominion of Rome...Mr. Laurie moved an addition, expressing indignation and alarm at the introduction ol Romish principles and practices into the services of the Established Church by many of the clergymen of that and other dioceses, and that greater danger is to be apprehended from unfaithful teaching within the Church, than from any open hostility from without'.
