"The Duke of York (right), blowing a horn, sits in the boot of a coach driven by a lawyer, probably William Adam (left), who says: I thought we should bring him through. On the roof is a bush supporting a placard: Acquitted Glorious Majority of 82. Inside the coach are three lawyers, as in British Museum Satires No. 11269, who are not characterized. The coach is surrounded by a cheering mob. Mrs. Clarke, a termagant with streaming hair, holds up clenched fists towards the Duke. Next her is a fat parson, who says: I always said he was Innocent. A man shouts Huzza Glorias News for Old England. Next him is a bearded Jew in a long gown with a sack on his shoulder inscribed Left of Regimentals. A man shouts: That's right-go it my Darling [cf. British Museum Satires No. 11228]."--British Museum online catalogue.
