SUMMARY: Warren Hastings (left) stands looking round with contemptuous anger at Burke and Fox (right) who are flinging mud at him. Burke, wearing a Jesuit's biretta and a long gown, stands with wide-stretched arms, mud in both hands; a prancing and grinning satyr clings to his right arm and looks round mockingly at Hastings. Fox, straddling across a puddle stoops to collect mud in both hands, looking at Hastings. Behind him a little ragged shimney-sweep shouts and capers, holding his brush in one hand, mud in th eother. Behind the assailants is a corner of Westminster Hall. Hasings is grasping his sheathed sabre. On the extreme left are two lawyers, one taking (unnoticed) a purse from Hastings' draperies.
