Pub Mar. 8. 1797. by S. W. Fores No 50, Piccadilly, corner of Sackville S.t. [n.d. c.1797]
Hand coloured etching, 18th century watermark, sheet 305 x 235mm (12¼ x 9¼"). Trimmed within plate on right. Small margins on 3 sides.
Satire on the British Bank Restriction Act 1797. Pitt bestrides a saddle on top of the Speaker's chair, he wears top-boots in place of shoes, and looks down at the Opposition instead of at his own supporters. Instead of bulging coat-pockets, saddlebags are strapped to a belt round his waist; one (left) is 'Resources for Prosecuting the War'; from it hang strips of paper: '20s British Assignats 40s D.o 10s D.o 5s D.o 2.6. D.o'. Rolled documents also project from it: 'St Georges Volunteers', 'Yeomanry Fencibles', 'Supplementary Cavalry', 'Supplementary Militia.' On the other bag, 'Remains of the Gold & Silver Coin', Pitt arrogantly rests his left hand. With the spur on his left top-boot he gashes Fox, so that a stream of blood pours from his side; he and the other leaders of the Opposition are terrified, Sheridan and Erskine amoung them. Pitt's right boot is not spurred; beside and behind it are the ranks of the Ministerialists, kneeling in alarmed and bewildered supplication. Dundas in Highland dress stands with his hands on his hips with Wilberforce next him. The Speaker looks straight before him, holding up both hands; the clerks write, each turning towards the group of members next him.

Portrait of Mary 'Perdita' Robinson (British, 1758–1800), an English actress, poet, dramatist, novelist, and socialite. She earned her nickname for her role as Perdita (heroine of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale) in 1779. She was the first public mistress of King George IV while he was still Prince of Wales. Her husband, Thomas Robinson, was imprisoned for debt in the Fleet Prison where she lived with him for many months. It was here that her literary career really began, as she found that she could publish poetry to earn money, her first book, Poems By Mrs. Robinson, was published in 1775. After her husband obtained his release from prison, Robinson decided to return to the theatre. She launched her acting career and took to the stage playing Juliet at Drury Lane Theatre in December 1776. From the late 1780s, Robinson became distinguished for her poetry and was called "the English Sappho". In addition to poems, she wrote eight novels, three plays, feminist treatises, and an autobiographical manuscript that was incomplete at the time of her death. She championed the rights of women and was an ardent supporter of the French Revolution. She died in poverty at Englefield Cottage, Englefield Green, Surrey, 26 December 1800, aged 44.

Satire on the Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829, Lord Chancellor John Scott, 1st Earl of Eldon was notoriously anti-catholic. Eldon's head rests on a candle-end which is in an elaborate candle-stick of gold plate, standing on the ground. Wellington, in uniform, reaches up to cover it with a huge extinguisher inscribed 'Catholic Bill Majority 168'; he says: 'Thus I obscure you, ne'er to shine again.' Eldon looks to the left, registering intensive melancholy; rays from his head, obstructed on the left by the extinguisher, strike against the profile of George IV, whose head, shoulder, and paunch project from the right margin, leaning towards the candle says 'Poor Old Bags!'
