Summary

Print shows Lords Bute and Mansfield conferring, to their right stands Simon Fraser and Lord Wedderburn, "Deputies" to the aforenamed. On the far right are soldiers wearing Highland dress (of the 71st Regiment of (Highland) Foot (Fraser's)), ready to proceed with the "Scotch butchery" of Boston. On the left are British soldiers who drop their weapons in horror at the sight of the Highlanders. In the background, British, flying the ensign of a thistle (which also appears growing in the center foreground), bombard the city of Boston, Massachusetts. Includes legend to persons and events identified by number.
