Lettered with title and publication line "Pubd by Dighton, Spring Gardens. May. 1812."
A stout lawyer puts his left arm across the shoulders of a lean and distraught client, gripping him with a sinister show of affection, while he scrutinizes his face with the calculating smile of false friendship. He takes a sheaf of 'One' pound notes from his victim's hand. The lawyer is fashionably dressed; a brief-bag is slung from his arm. The client wears old-fashioned dress; his shoes are distended by bunions.
