Goodchild and his wife are seated in the place of honour in a large banquet hall. In the foreground, greedy liverymen are waited on by a young black man, while a boorish beadle stops a crowd of petitioners at the door, one of whom has handed him a letter addressed "To the Worshipt. Fras. Goodchild Es. Sher[iff of] ... Londo[n]." The walls are decorated with two large portraits, one of which is William III and a statue of Sr William Walworth Kt. The right of the frame is decorated with a scourge, manacles and a hangman's rope; on the left frame hang the mace of the City of London, the alderman's gold chain and a sword of state.
