Description

TITLE:  Thunder, lightning and smoke, or, the wind shifted from the north to the east CALL NUMBER:  PC 3 - 1788--Thunder, lightning and smoke ... (A size) [P&P] REPRODUCTION NUMBER:  LC-USZ62-44842 (b&w film copy neg.) RIGHTS INFORMATION:  No known restrictions on publication. SUMMARY:  Print shows Sir Philip Francis(?) standing, facing right, with dagger in left hand, on the far right, Warren Hastings, wearing a turban, is standing amid bags of money beneath a flag "India Preserved" and against thunder and lightning coming from Edmund Burke and Charles James Fox whose heads are atop a weathervane labeled "Impeachment" which is supported by Francis, the "Source." A cloud of smoke extends to the left behind Burke and Fox, it obscures a "Coal[i]tio[n]" beneath which sits Lord North in rags with a flag "America Lost" and an "M.T." purse. The smoke screen on the left contains several statements: "He has utterly ruined his country!" -- "Hold the man infamous that associates with him!" -- "Consider the man curst that goes over the threshold with him!" -- "We will not suffer him to escape" -- "We pledge ourselves to bring him to the Scaffold!!!" -- "We will not rest till we have brought him to the Block!!!"; the thunder and lightning (or the wind that has shifted from North to Hastings) contains flowers and dice; Burke and Fox, holding the cup, appear to have cast their lot with Hastings who looks alarmed.
