Q.A. loaded with the spoils of India and Britain [graphic].

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "Pitt rides (right to left) a zebra; he sits on the animal's hind quarters, flourishing a whip; before him are two panniers filled with jewels, one inscribed 'Rights and Wrongs'. From the zebra's neck hangs a large jewel inscribed 'Bulse'. He says, "I have thrown off the Mask. I can blind the people no longer and must now carry every thing by my bought Majority." The zebra (the Queen) is led by Dundas (left) [Identified by Miss Banks as Thurlow: the resemblance to either is inconclusive, though pointing to Thurlow, but the inscription indicates Dundas.] and urged on by Richmond (right), who prods it with a goad. It says, "What are Childrens rights to Ambition - I will rule in spite of them if I can conceal things at Q." [Kew.] In front of Dundas (left) is a signpost: "To Tower Hill by B------m [Buckingham] house". Dundas turns his head to shout at Pitt: "So many Scotchmen have left their heads behind in this d------d tower for treason I begin to tremble as much as thief in the rear for my own." Richmond, noted for his unfailing support of Pitt, says, "Skulking in the rear out of sight suits best my character." Behind him (right) is a cannon."--British Museum online catalogue.
