Engraved for the Whimsical Repository September 1st 1774.
10½ x 8. Uncoloured on laid paper with two vertical folds and some creasing. 
The cow is being operated on for bloat, while the dying women is attended by three doctors.
This is a satire on the high food prices and the financial failures of 1773-74. The cow is suffering from an abundance of food while the women is dying for lack of provisions. It is likely that Mr. Blake, (see the letter lying on the floor), and a Mr. R. are parish officers who have allowed the women to starve to death. In the distance is ‘A view of Portsmouth’ where the events presumably took place.

Published June 1818 by G. Humphrey 27 St James’s Street London, (publication line is scripted in where it later appears as printed). Above the design: 'Westminster Election June 18th 1818'.

14¼ x 10¼. Original colour with reasonable margins and a split to right-hand margin.

Across the design extends a section of the hustings at Covent Garden with a central upright on which is a placard: '1st Day / State of Poll / Romilly—189 / Maxwell—176 / Burdett—87 / Kinnaird 25 / Hunt 14 / Cartwright 10'. At the base of the design is a fringe of upturned proletarian heads, their words ascending in labels, which cover the wooden barrier in front of the hustings. Hunt is saying, "I am a plain Englishman, I approve of the Conduct of Sir Murray Maxwell, in coming forward as he has done—Why should you send Sir Samuel Romilly to Parliament? he can find his way into the Den of Corruption. You Know the Hero of the Tower as well as I do, who ran out at the Back Door, when his Friends were waiting for him at the Front.—I have hoisted the Cap of Liberty." Maxwell, in naval uniform answers, "Gentlemen—Mr Hunt is anxious you should hear me now. I am sure you will hear him presently with pleasure, I am certain my cause is as popular as his, for I see many Pretty Girls pressing forward to hear me. Of all the Days in the Year none appear more favorable for a British Officer to receive your Support than the Anniversary of Waterloo."

Parliament was dissolved on 10 June; Cochrane, having accepted the command of the Chilian Navy, retired, making it necessary to find a Reform candidate to stand with Burdett, who was regarded as established in Westminster. The Westminster Committee chose Douglas Kinnaird, the Ministerial candidate was Sir Murray Maxwell, captain R.N., and small groups put forward Hunt. Polling began on 18 June; the results of the first day are correctly given. Murray was hit on the eye by a stone, and appeared next day wearing a shade.

14½ x 10½. Original colour trimmed to the border with a small repaired tear just into border.

Two sides are almost equally matched in a tug-of-war for Power as they pull on a long piece of fabric, which is labelled ‘POWER’. George IV, in field-marshal's uniform, pulling the Pope's long drink-blotched nose, and threatening him with his baton; he says: I'll put up with no nonsense from any of you, my goodnature shall not be imposed upon; if you advance an other inch I'll knock out your wicked brains, I swear by St George!! The Pope has one cloven hoof and one bare sandalled foot, which he raises and shouts, “Oh! lord you have hurt my great toe! by our Lady I'll excommunicate you. let my nose alone, can't you ? O! Oh!!! I'd give my eye, to have had my nose prepared with Windsor-Soap.” Behind the Pope is Canning to whose back a demon clings. The Archbishop, wears mitre and lawn sleeves. He says, “I protest that the Coronation Oath does prvent his Majesty emancipating the Papists.” Behind him John Bull shouts, “We,ll have no purging or fasting here. Then pull away! pull away, jolly boys! don't be down-hearted yoe ho!”

A No-Popery print justifying the 'Protestant' resignations on Canning's appointment, In a long speech on 2 May (published), Wellington defended his resignation, which he justified by 'the manner in which I have been treated by the corrupt press, in the pay of the Government'. Eldon's words in the same debate are also paraphrased. Peel was blamed for his resignation only after he himself carried Emancipation; he was, as Wellington said on 2 May, 'universally acquitted'; for his reforms at the Home Office.
