Summary

Print shows Elizabeth Canning, transported to America, seated in a room. She looks alarmingly at an old crone pointing to a soldier's uniform. Through the open window can be seen British soldiers marching up a hill as dark-skinned natives carry large bundles. The text, relating a dream, refers to the French and Indian War, Joan of Arc, and Canning's accuser in Britain, Mary Squires.
