Below title: Poor little Mickee! Just mounting! & then funk'd & frighten'd out of all his hopes.
Library's copy closely trimmed.
Print shows Michael Angelo Taylor, wearing the Speaker's gown, about to step up to the empty Speaker's Chair, staggering back in alarm with his long wig falling from his head. From nozzles at the ends of twisting tubes directed against him from both sides issue jets inscribed 'Hiss'. A phalanx of hawks on the Government benches threatens him from the left, while on right and nearer bench three buzzards do the same from the Opposition side. The nearest bird has the bloated and inflamed features of Sheridan.
