Summary

Print shows Samuel Turner, Lord Mayor of London, at the head of a procession, alongside Liberty, to present the petition of the Livery of London to the king. Truth rides sidesaddle on a donkey followed by William Beckford, Barlow Trecothick, and Sir R. Ladbroke; an effigy of Thomas Harley brings up the rear among the rabble. On the right, Lord Holland, portrayed as a fox, stands in a sentries box and points to a fool's cap on the ground, he whispers to the sentry, "It fits exactly".
