Spys at Greenwich
Mother Windsor with four of her courtesans orders her girls to arrest the Bishop of Durham and Duke of Queensberry, spying on young women rolling down Greenwich Hill, a holiday custom. Barrington stands in back view holding his glass. This was an attack on Barrington for his protest against opera dancers.
