Abstract
  • British Museum No. 9515“A school-room repre- sents the House of Commons. On one side (1.) sits Dundas with a cane, at the other Pitt suavely receiving a new scholar. In the centre Fox, wearing a fool's cap inscribed Truant, stands on a pile of papers weeping ; he holds a birch-rod in his 1. hand. The papers : Lists of Traitors, Reports of he Secret Committee, Reports, Reports, Quiglys Life, L^ E. Fitzgerald, O Conners Confession, Death & Caract[er]. Pitt says to the boy in Court dress who faces him : You are a New Scholar. I Perceive, be a Good Boy & you shall be rewarded. Say after me, P-E-N-Pen SI-si-Pensi-ON-on — Pension— thats a Good Boy!!! The answer is: P-E-N-Pen . . . [&c.]. Pitt holds a paper Aye No Place Pension. ; on his desk is a paper: Plan for an Union. From his pocket issues A List of Secret Traitors. Two bags are under his stool : Old Wigs for Bad Boys and (disgorging guineas) Candle Ends Cheese Pareings & Sugar Plumbs for Good Boys. Dundas, in tartan, turns threateningly to a row of desks inscribed Forms for Sulky Boys, where Sheridan and Burdett look at each other apprehensively. He says : Haud yere Tongues, Young Gentlemen — or Ye' II never Thrive i the World, Good Boys Should never Say any thing but Aye, or NO! “ (Source: George)
