Print shows Pitt, thickly coated with feathers, standing between Sheridan and Fox. Only his face, hands, and (bare) feet are uncovered. He turns his head in towards Fox, who shoves a mop inscribed 'Remonstrance of the People' and covered with hot tar into his mouth . He stands beside a steaming cauldron (of tar) inscribed 'Rights of the People', under which are blazing papers: 'Sedition Bill', 'Ministerial Influence', and 'Informations'. Round Pitt's neck is a noose, the rope from which hangs over a lamp-bracket. On the lamp is a crown; on the post a placard: 'Fate of the Sedition Bill'. Sheridan raises in both hands a huge cap of 'Libertas', from which feathers shower down on Pitt's head. Beneath the title: "Nay & you'll stop our Mouths, beware your Own."
