Interesting Record: Evening Herald

"The Evening Herald was described by the under secretary [of the Catholic Party], Gregory, in 1813, as 'the worst of all papers'."

“A poster, apparently, had been put out saying that the Herald's last number would contain some startling revelations - secret instructions alleged to have been given by the prince regent, against the Catholics of Canada. 'Your police', the open letter ran, 'took down the placard of the Herald; you did other things which for the present I omit to mention - you are greatly mistaken if you think that your threats, or you police can influence the conduct of the proprietor'."

Evidently the last number of the Herald had been suppressed; details, however, were not given.
