"A satirical sequel to British Museum Satires No. 6456, in which Fox is in the cart. Fox drives (right to left) Sir Cecil Wray as a pauper in the county pass-cart to the place of his settlement in Lincolnshire. Fox sits on the high driving-seat of a ramshackle cart flourishing his whip and looking round at Wray, who sits disconsolately in profile to the right, his hands clasped and resting on the side of the cart. Fox says, "I will drive you to Lincoln where you may Superintend the Small beer & brick dust". Wray says, "I always was a poor dog But now I am worse than ever". Hood stands (right) in profile to the left. looking at the cart and saying "Alas poor Wray". A signpost (left) points to Lincoln. On a tilt which covers part of the cart, behind Wray's head, is inscribed 'The Lincoln shire Caravan for Paupers'."--British Museum online catalogue.
