Abstract:
"A sequel to British Museum Satires No. 3856 showing Scots paying court to Lord Bute expecting advancement. A crowd of grotesquely caricatured and scrawny Scots plead before Bute seeking posts; Bute, wearing a huge feather in his cap, promises "My Power is very great all those things & muckle mair will I do for ye" and hold a large money bag, while Princess Augusta sits beside him expressing her support. Behind are shelves laden with bulging money bags, "Provision for the Laddies". Other Scotsmen, who had evidently arrived some time earlier, discuss their good fortune, among whom a group sitting at a table boast of good eating; they wear feathers in their caps."--British Museum online catalogue.
