Anticipation; or, the contrast to the royal hunt / Britons fact.
Print shows the restoration of England under the new ministry; the pillars that supported the Temple of Fame are being righted and put back in place; a soldier with sword in hand protects a Native, representing America, from a Dutchman who kneels in supplication, as a Frenchman and a Spaniard flee his menacing posture. Lord North is caricatured as a washerwoman, Lord Sandwich as a ballad-singer, and Lord Rockingham as an oculist restoring sight (and reason) to George III who will renounce the hunt and return to the affairs of state.
