See No. 13292. Heading to thirty-five lines of verse appended to the parody, beginning 'This is a Priest, made "according to Law"'. A parson (Ethelston) with two heads and two pairs of arms, emerges Janus-like from a double rostrum, one half pulpit, the other a magistrate's seat. One profile is bland, the other savage; both are drink-blotched. One (left) holds up a cross, the other (right) a miniature gallows. The latter also holds blunderbuss, scourge, and shackles. On the pulpit 'I H S' surmounts an irradiated triangle; on the other panel is an irradiated crown surmounted by 'G P R'.
