SUMMARY: Print shows a popular satire commenting on the Stamp Act. The supporters of the act gather at a dock to carry a small coffin containing the remains of the bill toward an open vault. Leading the procession and preparing to deliver the funeral eulogy is the Reverend W. Scott, who is followed by Grenville (carrying the coffin), Bute, Bedford, and Temple, who were among those responsible for passing the act. Quantities of unshipped cargoes destined for America have accumulated on the dock during the time that the act was in force.
