CALL NUMBER:  PC 1 - 4124 (A size) [P&P]

RIGHTS INFORMATION:  No known restrictions on publication.
SUMMARY:  Print shows several men, George Grenville, Lord Bute, the Duke of Bedford, and, as a small dog wearing clerical robes, Dr. W. Scott, labeled "AntiSejanus", dancing on a sarcophagus with bas-reliefs of "Britannia" and "America" and bearing the inscription: "Here lieth the Body of William Duke of Cumberland &c lamented by his Country, which he twice Sav'd. First by overcoming ... and after by selecting a ministry, out of those virtuous few, who gloriously withstood GENERAL WARRANTS, AMERICAN STAMPS, EXTENSION OF EXCISE, --- &c, &c, &c. On the left stands Lord Sandwich (Jemmy Twitcher) holding a flagpole entwined with two snakes and flying a banner labeled "The Oriflame" [i.e., oriflamme] and on which appears the head of Medusa, perhaps suggesting that the ideal to aspire to is discord. Behind the sarcophagus stands the Earl of Halifax, and on the right stand, Earl Temple, who clutches in his left hand the tail of "AntiSejanus" and the tail of a Scottish devil standing next to him on a book labeled "Jemmy Twitcher's laws for the gang"; on the far right stand two members of the clergy.
