Abstract:
"A man in old-fashioned dress kneels in profile to the right at a high-backed elbow-chair, clutching a bundle of 'Bank Notes'. He addresses the 'Adorable and ancient Lady of Thread-needle Street', asking for wealth, for success to the conductors of the new buildings of the Stock Exchange, and for 'prosperity to the little man in the brown bob wig [? John Bull], for he has much money and little wit, therefore fair game for . . . my profession'. He also prays that he may never be a Lame Duck (a defaulter, cf. BMSat 6273)."--British Museum online catalogue.
