|Caption||Lord North and the Earl of Mansfield stand on a platform addressing a group of distressed patriots beyond which ships of war sail and sink. Engraving, 1776. Satirical illustration to an article intended to counteract the effect of the news of the capture of New York. Lord North is smiling as he holds up a dispatch beginning with 'My lord' and signed 'how'. Lord Bute and George III stand behind on the right. Two ministers point with amusement at the patriots, among whom is John Wilkes who raises his fist. A dishevelled-looking woman sits weeping holding the cap of liberty. Mansfield was not in North's cabinet but was sympathetic to his policies. Created 1 Dec. 1776. Britannia (Symbolic character). Patriotism. Bribery. Elections. Despotism. New York (State). America. William Murray, Earl of Mansfield (1705–1793). John Wilkes (1725–1797). George III, King of Great Britain (1738–1820). John Stuart, Earl of Bute (1713–1792). Frederick North, Lord (1732–1792).
