Summary

Print shows several ministers helping themselves to fishes and loaves that have spilled from a fishwife's basket which was upset by a rampaging "American Buffalo"; among those depicted are the Duke of Portland, Lord Cavendish, Lord North, Charles Fox, Lord Thurlow, Admiral Keppel, Lord Shelburne, and Thomas(?) Pitt. George III watches the shameless opportunism from a window in the background.
