"A yokel in a long smock (right) stands, hat in hand, before three elderly J.P.s in old-fashioned dress; he tugs at his rough hair. One of the justices sits in an arm-chair, with folded hands and downcast frown. The other two, leaning across a table on which are writing materials, scowl angrily; one, clenching his fist, says: "How dare you Fellow to say it is unfair to bring you before one hundred Magistrates when you see there are but three of us!" He answers: "Why please your Worship you maun know--when I went to school, they Taught I that a one and two O's stood for a hundred--so do you see your Worship be One and the other two be Cyphers!"."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
