From the library of Gordon N. Ray.

Print shows Lord Kenyon, with a scourge and birch-rod, flogging Lady Buckinghamshire, whose wrists are tied to the back of a cart; from his pocket issues a paper: 'Laws against Gambling'. On a pitchfork lashed to the cart is a placard: 'Faro's Daughter's Beware'. A crowd surrounds a pillory in which stand two ladies under a rain of missiles flung by the mob. Both wear feathers in their hair, one (left) has a profile somewhat resembling that of Lady Archer, the other is probably Mrs. Concannon.
