Abstract
  • British Museum No. 9348“Pitt, in the open two-wheeled carriage for one person called a sulky, drives (r. to 1.) two bulls tandem ; the leader is branded I.B (John Bull), the wheeler, who snorts and paws the ground, is PB (Paddy Bull, cf. No. 9346). John Bull plods along, saying. This is cursed hard Work to get this Irish Brother of mine along. I don’t much relish this close connection. Pitt, leaning forward, but not using his whip, says: Whoo — hoo — Paddy gently my lad, don’t be so refractory, cant you follow your Brother John? see how Quietly he takes cholar D n these stones they'll upset me. His wheel is against a boulder: Irish Resolutions; two others lie ahead: Irish Objections and Voice of the People. On his carriage is a large crown, and a sign-post (r.) points 1. to Windsor. On the horizon (1.) Windsor Castle is faintly indicated.”(Source: George)
