SUMMARY: Print shows George IV, "a conning stoker," of some "Mischief brewing," stirring up the "Flames of Persecution," with "vengeance," saying, "If this trial fail I'l brew no more." Behind him is a vat "Filthy composition" into which flows "a pure stream to expose the secrets" which spills on a couple in an embrace, "How do you like it - non mi Ricordo." Passing an open door is Caroline, "The brewers wife." On the right are three men, one says, "Be just in all your dealings." Another, holding a pitcher labeled "a trial" says, "I can't swallow this, it is all froth." The third says, "I wonder at our commander engaging in such a business."
