Product Description

A Satire on the M.P. Henry Grey Bennet. The subject is somewhat obscure but the general thought is that it is relative to Bennet’s attack on Denis O’Bryen (former Foxite and freind of Fox, as a “foul apostate” and a ministerial agent-provacateur who had promoted the publication of Seditious placards. The illustration shows Bennet under the horns of John Bull, which is being goaded non by Sir Thomas Burdett B.M. No. 14045
