Abstract:
"'General' [See BM Satires 15162], with the same jockey beside him, stands dejectedly, while a second horse (left), held by a jockey who says I'm the Boy for a make weight, is having weights shackled to his fore-feet: one inscribed 12.00, the other 200. The man doing this smiles slyly, saying, There! now I have him as secure as the Hampshire Hog in the Pound. Three betting men stand together. One looks over his shoulder to say: That will do the Thing! I'll bet the Craven Stakes to leg-Alley! A fat man says to the third: I'll bet you 1200 to 200! The other leans forward insinuatingly: Come I say shew your Spice make it Thousands. The former answers: No, No, I dont want to be done up. A man on horseback, looking towards the second horse, says: Aye, Aye Squirrel against Panic now for 300 Gs."--British Museum online catalogue.
