Abstract
  • British Museum No. 14408 “An Irish print. Wellesley (1.), in Vicegeral robes, stands looking down with quizzical appraisal at a pack of suppliant and weeping dogs with human heads which are well characterized. He holds out a document: Kings Le[tter]. Behind him are a beefeater and draperies indicating the throne. The dogs are led by a lean greyhound marked C, with the head of Lord Manners in his Chancellor's wig; his collar, inscribed Chan . . ., is linked by a chain to the dog on his 1., marked S . m [} William Saurin, Solicitor-General]. On Manners's r. are a bishop with a mitre-shaped cap inscribed D [? Lord George Beresford, Archbishop of Dublin], and a dog with a handkerchief to his eye and with a coat-collar inscribed Charles Ba . . . [? C. K. Bushe (C.J. of the K.B. since Feb. 1822)]. A very stout dog wearing a double gold chain, and with B. BC on his coat-collar, is placarded : Ferret.” (Source: George)
