Duane was not without hope, however, as friends had thought to send money with the William Pitt’s purser, Mr Russell.3 With these funds Duane was able to travel to London and make contact with other people sharing a similar opinion of the state of Britain and its empire. Duane’s radical circle in India resembled one of the corresponding societies of England. His movement from the Indian group to the LCS appears natural and may have been done through existing correspondence between Calcutta and London. During the next ten months Duane was engaged in a propaganda campaign against the EIC within the pages of Th e Telegraph: a newspaper like Th e Argus run by LCS members. It is unclear what his movements were but we do know that he was living in Gray’s Inn by 4 September 1795.4 Duane possibly received help from his cousin Michael Bray, who had successfully taken over from their uncle, Mathew Duane, at the Inns of Court. We know that Division 28 of the LCS took in Gray’s Inn Road and that some of the LCS ‘citizens’ gave this area as their address.5
