Two designs separated by a vertical line.  Hobhouse, holding out the skirts of his coat, screens a soldier who crouches behind him. He says: 'No Flogging! One Lash Degrades as much as A Thousand!'  A soldier with a bleeding back is lashed to a post; Hobhouse stands beside him with a scourge across his shoulder and 'Official' papers in his pocket. He extends his hand towards a paper inscribed '£30' in the victim's pocket.; proof before the published state.Wood-engraving
