Sir John Key
"What a scandalous shame it is that they are allow'd to take people off in this here kind of way". Sir John Key, with asses' ears, is shown weeping into a large handkerchief over a caricature of himself as a donkey; an allusion to his annoyance at the satires concerning his postponement of the Royal Visit to the City in 1830.
