"New version of John Gilpin, after Stothard"; shows Sir Robert Peel, shedding hat inscribed 'Toryism' and wig inscribed 'Conservative', and with a purse, 'Income Tax', riding furiously towards a door marked 'Protection'. The Duke of Wellington reins in his mount and various other parliamentary figures gesticulate, one, on left, holds a hoop marked 'Free Trade'.
