Abstract:
In the center of the image, Major Cartwright holds a long staff in his right hand, as he delivers a pro-Pitt speech in Covent Garden. To his right, in a pleading attitude, stands Lord Hood, the ministerial candidate opposing Charles Fox in the upcoming Westminster election. Neither attracts any attention from the crowd of Fox's supporters listening to a man speaking from the portico of St. Paul's.
