The sick prince

Print shows the Prince of Wales on a deathbed with members of the opposition on one side, Thurlow among them with raised dagger, wishing him a speedy death, and supporters on the other side wishing him a speedy recovery. Father Time is poised at center having upset a number of physicians and a dark, savage-like figure with a broken dart who may represent Death.
