High-flying-candidate (i.e. little Paul-goose) mounting from a blanket [graphic] / Js. Gillray invt. & fect.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Hood, in naval uniform, and Sheridan toss Paull high in the air from a Coalition-Blanket. Paull is dressed as a tailor, with ungartered stockings and slippers, a tape-measure round his shoulders; he drops a tailor's goose (iron) and shears. Hood wears naval uniform with top-boots; he tucks a corner of the blanket under his empty coat-sleeve (he lost his arm in an action off Rochefort, 25 Sept. 1805). In Sheridan's pocket is a pamphlet: 'The Devil among ye Tailors'. Below the blanket is a flat tombstone: 'Sacred to the Memory of Poor Charley late Member for the City of Westminster - We ne'er shall meet his like again!!!' This, together with adjacent flag-stones, the ghost of Fox is pushing up; his head and hand emerge, registering profound disapproval; he says: "O Temporal O Mores." Behind Hood is a mob of cheering sailors with banners; two are inscribed: 'Hood and Sheridan - for Ever! - no Skulking to Buonaparte, and Navy and volunteers No Sarver ['] no Taylor." They wear favours inscribed 'Hood' and they shout "Hood & Sherry". Behind Sheridan are cheering volunteers in uniform with a banner: 'Sheridan and Hood! - Volunteers and the Navy.' They shout "Sherry & Hood for Ever"; "No Stitchlouse"; "Sherry" [three times], "Sheridan". Behind (r.) is the left. end of the hustings with placards indicating the polling places for the parishes of 'St James' and 'St George'. Behind the blanket, and in the distance, is a cheering mob; those on the left shout "Hood for Ever" or [once only] "Sherry for ever". Those on the r. (including a chimney-sweep) shout "Paul for Ever, Cucumber for Ever, Paul & Cabbage"; one man holds up a pair of shears."--British Museum online catalogue.

Sketch for a monument of disappointed-justice [graphic].

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "The figures are placed in an alcove recessed in a wall of heavy stones. The massive Ellenborough in wig and gown sits on a wooden seat or plank supported by Sidmouth, Lauderdale, and Stanhope, with behind, the bent posteriors and massive legs of Grenville, who is otherwise hidden by Lauderdale and by a pan suspended from the seat. This seat is 'Broad-Bottom Cabinet' [cf. BMSat 10530], the pan (shaped like that of a commode) is 'Privy Seat'. The plank rests on the shoulders of Sidmouth (l.) and Stanhope (r.); both are tall, thin, and elderly, their heads in profile to the right. The short and solid Lauderdale stands between them, with Ellenborough's feet on his left. shoulder and on Stanhope's r. arm. He is in Highland dress, holds a bonnet rouge, and stands on a large book: 'Brissots Principles of Justice'. Sidmouth holds his cocked hat, and wears the Windsor uniform; in his pocket is a bottle labelled 'Viper Drops'; beside him lies a clyster-pipe (cf. BMSat 9849). Beside Stanhope is an open book: on one page a picture of a boat, 'Justitia', exploding, with a pair of scales shot into the air; on the other: 'The Catamaran of Justice - or the last Expedition to blow up All Opposition in spite of Wind & Tide.' Ellenborough, directed to the right., holds up a pair of scales; the r. scale heavily outweighs the other; it contains a mitre and papers inscribed: 'Decision of the Peers', 'Not Guilty', 'Eldon', 'Vote of the Bishops', 'Opinion of the Eleven Judges'. In the other are a frothing tankard of 'Whitbr[ead's] Entire' [cf. BMSat 10421], and a paper: 'Impeachment'; to these Ellenborough gloomily adds his 'Sword of Justice'. Above his head is the inscription: 'FIAT IN JUSTITIA RUAT CŒLUM'; the 'in' is partly concealed by shading."--British Museum online catalogue.
