"Copenhagen House.'I tell you, citizens, we mean to new-dress the Constitution and turn it, and set a new nap on it' Shakespeare"; showing an election fair in Copenhagen Fields. On a platform to the right is a gesticulating figure, over whose head another, grinning, is holding green umbrella. Another man is holding a sheet inscribed "Resolution of the London Correspond Society". The two men standing up in the crowd are Citizen Richard Lee (on the left) holding one of his own tracts and John Thelwall (in butcher's apron) who shakes his fist.
