The Scots triumph, or a peep behind the curtain
Cartoon shows the entrance to a large building furnished with columns, from which heavy curtains are suspended. In the distance is the dome of St. Paul's to signify that the scene is in London. A coach, which is about to crush a Scotch thistle in the road, occupies the middle of the foreground, and contains John Wilkes and three of his supporters. In the foreground Britannia lies mourning, saying: "I am griev'd at the unhappy fate of my dear country, and my much beloved son Wilkes."
