Legacy [graphic].

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "The white horse of Hanover, laden with two panniers (inscribed 'Sterling') overflowing with guineas, and a tea-tray with a tea-service, is being led off to the right by a scampering demon, wearing a high cocked hat and a coat, his hair in a queue. Under his arm is a sack inscribed 'light gold for charities'. A signpost (right) points 'To Hesse-Cassel'. A sack, labelled 'For Secret Services', with the legs and feet of an animal or demon walks behind the horse, which directs a blast of excrement towards the royal party. In the middle distance (left) the royal family stand disconsolately in a group: Queen Charlotte, much caricatured, holds up a slender purse to the King with a gesture of despairing astonishment. The King, who wears a hunting-cap, though melancholy, appears resigned. The younger children, ragged and in tears, surround their parents. Behind them is Windsor Castle. In the foreground (left) is the corner of a debtors' prison, a begging-box outside the barred window through which look the Prince of Wales, Burke, Fox, and North; George Hanger's profile is just visible within."--British Museum online catalogue.

Non commission officers embarking for Botany Bay [graphic].

Author: Boyne, John, approximately 1750-1810,
Description: "A ship's boat, containing the Prince of Wales and his friends, puts off from shore. In the stern is Sheridan clenching his fist at two bearded Jews (left) who kneel in supplication for payment of their debts. Behind them stands Perdita Robinson, her hair loose, her arms outstretched, also in despair at the departure. Captain Morris stands in the stern, pushing off with a boat-hook. George Hanger turns round to threaten the two Jews with his bludgeon (cf. BMSat 6924). In front of him sits a man in legal gown and flowing wig, his face almost concealed, identified in an old hand (in BMSat 6992) as Erskine. His wig is inscribed 'Leather Bag'. The two central figures are the Prince and Fox; the Prince sits astride a cask of 'Imperial Tokey', holding up a glass and looking reflectively towards the shore; Fox stands behind him, his hands resting on the hilt of a large sword inscribed 'chop Logic'. In the bows stands Burke, bending forward, his arms outstretched as if giving a benediction; he wears a monk's robe with a mitre in place of the usual biretta (cf. BMSat 6026). At his feet sit North and Portland, wearing his coronet. Sheridan, Morris, and Fox wear armour and helmets; that of Sheridan is inscribed 'From Drury', that of Morris 'W Morris'; that of Fox is plumed, and decorated with a fox's head, a gallows, and the words 'We escape'. The Prince wears a fool's cap trimmed with his feathers. On the extreme left a gallows and a ship on a very small scale, inscribed 'Black Wall', are faintly indicated, showing that the departure is from Execution Dock where pirates and others were hanged."--British Museum online catalogue.
