Thelwall was charged along with John Horne Tooke and Thomas Hardy for giving lectures protesting the arrest of other radicals. Although he was acquitted, after prime minister William Pitt the Younger's Gagging Acts of 1795 Thelwall's lectures avoided censorship by moving from contemporary political commentary to the history of ancient Rome.
