"Lord Kenyon (left), in wig and robes, flogs with great vigour the scarred back of Lady Buckinghamshire, whose wrists are tied to the back of a cart. He has a scourge in the right hand, a birch-rod in the left; from his pocket issues a paper: 'Laws against Gambling'. His head is in back view. His fat victim wears a feathered turban and fashionably dressed hair; her profile and gestures indicate shrieking protest. The horse plods (left to right) away from the spectator. On a pitchfork lashed to the cart is a placard: 'Faro's Daughter's Beware'. Behind is a crowd, divided between those (right) who watch the cart, grinning, in front of whom stands a constable with his staff, and those in back view who surround a pillory in which stand two ladies, closely confined, under a rain of missiles flung by the mob. Both wear feathers in their hair, one (left) has a profile somewhat resembling that of Lady Archer, but is perhaps Lady Elizabeth Luttrell; the other is probably Mrs. Concannon."--British Museum online catalogue.
