Abstract:
"A bull, snorting ferociously, has tossed a Spaniard high in the air, a shower of coins falls from his pockets. The bull is attempting to charge a Frenchman and an American (right), the latter being an Indian brave, holding a spear and wearing a girdle and head-dress of feathers; they shrink back in alarm, the American sheltering behind the Frenchman. But the bull is checked by a Scot in Highland dress, who holds its tail saying, "Luton, a-Ho" (Luton being one of the estates of Bute). Bute's waist is held by North, who says "Bushey Park, a Ho" (North lived at Bushey Park, Lady North being the Ranger of the Park), and North's by Lord Mansfield saying "Caen Wood a Ho" (Caen (or Ken) wood being the estate bought by Mansfield from Bute. Cf. BMSat 4885). In the foreground (left) a Dutchman sits grinning on a cask inscribed "Hollands Gin"; he is about to light his pipe with a burning paper on which is inscribed "? TM", presumably representing the memorials of Yorke, see BMSat 5568. ..."--British Museum online catalogue.
