Library's copy annotated in pencil on verso with notes identifying the subjects of Gillray's caricatures.
Print shows Pitt as a Roman charioteer seated in a chariot drawn by the British Lion and the White Horse of Hanover and riding over a bank of clouds. Both animals dash furiously forward in pursuit of the Opposition. One of Pitt's feet rests on a shield bearing a fanged serpent, and wreathed with serpents, inscribed: 'Exit Python Republicanus'. Behind him is a book decorated with a lyre inscribed 'Magna Charta'. Ornate projections from the back of the chariot support the disk of the 'Sun of the Constitution': the Hebrew letters for Jehovah are surrounded by the words COMMONS . KING . LORDS. Two cherubs fly behind the chariot and on the extreme left; one holds up a 'Bible', the other a family tree of the 'Brunswick Succession'. Roses fall from the draperies of Justice, who floats before the chariot, leading it on, her head surrounded by a scroll inscribed 'Honorable Peace, or Everlasting War'. On the extreme left is the figure of a monstrous hag, her hair composed of serpents spitting fire, with a fillet inscribed 'The Whig Club'. Beneath the horse and lion are the heads and shoulders of Sheridan, Fox, and Stanhope, each dropping a dagger from his raised right hand. In the abyss beneath the clouds are three small winged creatures: an owl with the head of Lansdowne, and two bats with the head of M. A. Taylor and Erskine. They are Lauderdale, the Duke of Norfolk, the Duke of Grafton, and Lord Derby. Above their heads and among the clouds are fleeing serpents, a bonnet-rouge, a book: 'Irruption of the Goths and Vandals. 2d Edition', and a scroll whose ragged edges merge in cloud: 'Patriotick Propositions. Peace, Peace on any Terms. Fraternisation Unconditional Submission No Law, no King, No God.' Another branch of cloud diverges to the left behind Justice, covered with wrecked ships and tiny fleeing sansculottes.
