He is followed by 'A------n Sp------e' (Alderman Spice or Spence), an obese tallow-chandler, carrying a bunch of candles, and saying, "I'll assist him with my long Sixes". Next is a very lean apothecary with a large syringe, 'A------n T--m--n' (Alderman Thompson), saying, "he stand in Need of my Preventative." These three and the last man wear civic gowns. Next is 'A------n Fr--w--r' who turns the tap of a cask held under his arm, saying, "Aye Aye he shall have some Chatham Butt." Next is 'P--t--ce' (Prentice), with three bottles of wine; he turns to say to the barber who follows him, "I'll give him 13 to the Dozen and all sour". 'F--n--s' (as a 'flying barber', cf. BMSat 6834), carries a wig box, a covered pot of hot water, and a barber's bowl under his arm, saying, "I'll shave him I warrant you." A lean and elderly lawyer 'Sp------ks' (Sparks) follows, A case in Law protruding from his pocket; he says, "I'll beg to speak to Sherry for his business, bailing Actions, Demands writs of error &c That is if he'I promise to see me paid." A foppish man, 'B--st--w' (Bristow), with his hands thrust in his breeches pockets, says, "he shall never be tried by the Court of Conscience" (a court for the recovery of small debts). The next man 'R--b--n' (Robinson), also fashionably dressed, holds up a small rectangular object, saying, "There are your right sort none of your Quack". The last man, very obese, 'A------n N---h---n' (Alderman Nicholson), holds a brick and a trowel, saying, "I hope to have a Job to make him some Fortifications."--British Museum online catalogue.

One wheel is broken, the hammer-cloth is ragged; the harness consists partly of rope, partly of chains; the horses are of grotesquely varying sizes and breeds, on one is a saddle.
