The two ladies holding court under the central tree are said to be the beautiful Duchess of Devonshire and her sister Lady Duncannon, and among their entourage are plausibly identified Captain Topham, gossip writer to The World who quizzes them through a glass; Admiral Paisley with eye patch and wooden leg; to the right of the tree, James Perry, editor of The Morning Chronicle in highland dress.

But fortified by William's reassuring smile, and armed with my new Loomis, off we strode across said street and into Wandle Bank, past the John Brown Partnership factory site and round the old Merton Mill (a flour mill, once owned by Scot, James Perry, owner of the Morning Chronicle, a then 18th century Private Eye, but daily!).

London: edited by James Perry, and printed by John Lambert, for James Ridgway.

...
The long Preface (31pp.), written by James Perry (1756-1821), one of the most notable journalists of the age, the editor of the Morning Chronicle and John Lambert's co-defendant, is a significant essay on the liberty of the press and refers back to the circumstances of the first prosecution of Perry and Lambert for seditious libel in 1793.

Perry confirms his view that "a vigilant and direct censure of mal-administration was within the lawful province of the English press, and essential to the preservation of our rights and liberties as a people". And he writes powerfully also about the press and responsible journalism, its claim to professional status (not simply a "trade"). Perry was largely motivated (the Preface is dated 27th March 1810) by an "obnoxious" resolution before Parliament which would have prevented the admission of reporters to the gallery of the House of Commons, a resolution that in the event was withdrawn after an animated and at times acrimonious debate. The 1810 trial of Perry and Lambert was over a paragraph copied from Hunt's Examiner against the Prince Regent, and then repeated in the Morning Chronicle.

Perry and Lambert were thus acquitted.


My old friend, James Perry, ...

My old friend, James Perry, of the Morning Chronicle, who was confined there some months for a libel, was always glad to see me, so that I often partook his fortune de pot, enjoying ourselves, whilst many a distressed object, under the same roof, was loaded with fetters, and perhaps the very next hour might bring his death warrant. We often went to the top of the prison, as he found exercise very necessary for preserving his health, his apartment being confined, far different to the incarceration of my clerical friend in the Bench, for every body knows, that in that prison there is plenty of space to play at racket, which serves for an amusement, as well as to improve the health. Often we mounted the top of the prison there; nobody could see us where we were on the leads, and we amused ourselves, secure from being seen, with playing the Highland broadsword, at which he was very expert, being his favourite national diversion; and often I have seen him at the masquerade, dressed in the true costume of a Highlander, with a party of Scotch lassies, dancing Scotch reels.2

This would have been in 1798, when Perry (owner of the Morning Chronicle and native of Aberdeen) was in prison for libeling the House of Lords.
...
Otherwise Angelo wouldn't refer to Highland broadsword as Perry's "national diversion," nor would "Roworth" refer to broadsword fencing as the "Scotch Method.
...
It may be- although this is speculation- that the Ten Lessons of Angelo derive from his Aberdeen training partner James Perry, and that they represent the only surviving record of the Aberdeen Highland Broadsword School.
...
The tactic of slipping the lead leg frequently- the defining feature of Angelo's method, which has so often been described as English in origin- was actually a known characteristic of Highland Broadsword play, and Angelo may well have learned it from his Scottish training partner James Perry.
