English: In 1707 a group of at least forty gay men (or "sodomites") were arrested in London. They were described as a "gang" and frequented a "club" located near the Stock Exchange. Three of the men killed themselves while being imprisoned in the Compter. The ballad was printed on a single sheet of paper (a "broadside"), at the top of which are three illustrations showing one man cutting his throat while another man hangs from the prison window beside him, one hanged man being cut down, and two men embracing one another.
