Abstract:
Reaction to the Battle of Long Island and the capture of New York by British forces. North and Mansfield stand on a platform, the former holding up a dispatch from Howe. Bute and George III stand behind them. A distressed Wilkes stands in the left foreground, with a tearful woman on the ground near him holding the cap of Liberty. Two ministers are depicted on the right, one being Sandwich, the other probably Germain. The seacoast is visible in the background with ships, some sinking.
