SUMMARY: Print shows Lord Bute seated on clouds from behind which project rays of the sun, he holds a cat-o'-nine-tails in one hand, a purse in the other, his feet rest on an open volume of "the Laws of England". To his left sits William Pitt who wears a crown of three feathers and holds a crutch topped with a coronet and from which hangs a beggar's pouch. On Bute's right, also in the clouds, is the Duke of Grafton. Various ministers, some identifiable, prostrate themselves before the figures on the clouds. In the background, on the left, a Scottish soldier with sword raised is about to slay Britannia; in the foreground, on the right, is standing John Wilkes aghast at the scene before him.
