"Hunting a Mare"
"Hunting a Mare"; an ass, with the profile of Lord Mayor Atkins, flees from Henry Hunt and a crowd of jeering followers. Flames issue from his rump and from a saucepan tied to his tail. It is an allusion to Atkin's measures to control the crowd at the trial of Richard Carlile in Guildhall.
