Thomas Erskine
"Councellor Ego - i.e. - little i, myself i"; showing Thomas Erskine facing left and looking straight before him, wearing Counsellor's wig, gown and bands. He is holding a sheet of paper liberally inscribed with "i" and "me". Above his head is a cap of Liberty with athe tricolour cockade. The image is an allusion to Erskine's egotistical speeches.
