The Journalist Display'd Dear Friend, have you heard the fantastical Chimes, Ribbledum, Scribbledum, Fribbledum, Flash; As rung by the Journalists, all of our times? Satyrum, Traytorum, Treasondum, Trash; Popery! Slavery! Bribery! Knavery! Eruptions, Corruptions, & Some Body's Fall; Pensions & Places, Removes & Disgraces And Something & Nothing & the Divel & all. Note: Published 1740. This is only the first verse; I'm looking for others. Spelling is modernized. RG From The British Broadside Ballad, Simpson RG
