The poet, Duncan Henderson was a well-known grocer and spirit dealer in Paisley (6 Cowieston). A keen Reformer, he greatly admired William Cobbett, but died during Cobbett's tour of Scotland: Cobbett visited his widow. In this poem Henderson attacks Peel and Wellington and describes an address from 'Whig' in which the character demands that the constitution be cleaned of 'things corrupt and base'.
