Abstract:
"The undergraduate, cap in hand, stands with bent head facing a table at the opposite end of which stands the Master, obese, drink-blotched, and angry, delivering sentence. Six Fellows stand at the table, three a side, all glaring at the culprit, and much caricatured. A gaiter lies on the table. At the door, and immediately behind the undergraduate, stands a college servant, his hand on the door-handle, holding a long wand (like that held by the butler of Trinity College, Cambridge, in BMSat 7017). The room is bare with a panelled wall, the only furniture the table and a carved armchair behind the Master."--British Museum online catalogue.
