Woodman, spare that tree!
Touch not a single bough!
In youth it sheltered me,
And I'll protect it now.

- George Pope Morris, 1830

Mary had a little lamb;
Its fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go.

- Sarah Josepha Hale, Poems for our Children, 1830

Stolen sweets are always sweeter,
Stolen kisses much completer,
Stolen looks are nice in chapels,
Stolen, stolen, be your apples.

- Leigh Hunt, Song of Fairies Robbing an Orchard, 1830

It was a dark and stormy night.

March 16 1830

London reorganizes its police force into the famous Scotland Yard. The establishment of the agency is a response to the utter lawlessness of London and the inefficiency of a disorganized and untrained group of “petty bobbies” (police officers), who must often be bribed in order to make an arrest. Scotland Yard is run by former high-ranking military officers and the ranks of highly trained constables soon swell to over 3,000. “The Yard” has for many years been considered a top rank investigative and police agency and often works with other countries to combat crime and terrorism.
