A meeting of the National Convention of United Irishmen in disarray, the members having been shown a horrors of the French Revolution by a demon standing on the right wearing a Jacobin hat. The table around which the men are seated has over-turned and the members appear shocked and terrified at the demon's preachings. Above them, five demons tear at a map of Ireland.
