Summary

Print shows Lords Bute, North, and Mansfield dancing around a large thistle entwined with a garter ribbon bearing the motto "Honi soit qui mal y pense"; Mansfield is holding the "Quebec Bill" in his left hand. Light radiating from the blossom on top of the thistle appears to dispel the dark clouds circling above upon which sits the Devil.
