Flogging of Recorder Knowlys
"Brothers in law! or the finishing flourish of a City officer!!"; showing the Recorder Newman Knowlys tied to a post and being whipped by Sheriff Farebrother using a 'cat o' nine tails'. An old fish wife on the left says 'Vell this here ought to be recorded'. The Recorder had refused to remit a sentence of flogging at Farebrother's request and to apologise for it.
