Satire: a scene at the front door of the house of an admiral; two wounded sailors, one with his arm in a sling and a bandage over one eye, the other, who has lost a leg, handing sheets of paper, presumably a petition, to an indignant porter, an angry dog guards the door. 1 May 1790 Hand-coloured etching
