Abstract:
Reduced copy, from "The mountebank" (British Museum catalogue no. 3854), with out the inscriptions on the papers. The charletan's speech ends with : .. See here my lads heres the Golden Lozenges which will cure ye all make ye hauld up yr. heads and turn out mucle southern loons. A crowd mostly wearing Scotch plaid assemble on a mountebank's stage, bowing to him. Behind a line of curtains suggest a bed and a box of treasure on the floor. Lord Bute is the charlatan and stands holding money bags in each hand. A middle aged woman in a Welsh hat (the Princess of Wales) looks from between the curtains and listens with pleasure to the charlatan. The zany of the quack is a gaunt man in a Scotch plaid dressing gown and a tall fool's cap and holding a copy of "The Briton" under his arm and a horn in his girdle.
