Samuel Whitbread
Samuel Whitbread stands outside the door of his ale-house holding a frothing tankard. Charles James Fox and Richard Brinsley Sheridan superintend the disgorging of guineas by Henry Dundas Melville who sits on a stool vomiting into a sack inscribed Pro Bono Publico. Pitt stands beside Whitbread looking emaciated and ill.
