The First Issue of the 'St. James's Gazette' is Published

Henry Hucks (H.H.) Gibbs founded the St. James's Gazette out of the Paul Mall Gazette which had just been handed over to Henry Yates Thompson, the son-in-law of former owner George Smith. Thompson and his editor John Morely wanted to make Pall Mall  a more progressive and radical paper, however, this goal was never brought to fruition, as Gibbs and his editor Frederick Greenwood took a very conservative approach to the St. James's Gazette, even becoming one of the first magazines to publicly support the Imperialist movement.
