Queen Caroline
"The effusions of a troubled brain, or evil communications corrupt good manners"; Queen Caroline sits at the table, writing to the King, praying to be crowned at the approaching Coronation; several figures press round her, including Matthew Wood, depicted as a devil. In the sky are justice and an owl representing knowledge with newspapers behind it.
