Abstract:
William Pitt, wearing a tricorn hat and large sword at his side, stands defiantly shouting at a group of four men and one woman. He holds a rolled document in his fist behind him. One of the men, his hands outstretched as if to hold off Pitt or calm him down, confronts him while his companions cower behind him. The woman has fallen to her knees and turns in terror.
