  • October 25: Rumors that the British King had been fired upon, perhaps by an air rifle proved to nothing more than a pebble thrown at his carriage in St. Margaret's Street. The government had been busy concocting what became known as the "Pop-Gun Plot," an imaginary conspiracy to assassinate the King with an air gun firing a poison arrow. Conservatives will believe anything that suits them.
