After 'A' in the title the letters 'ttorney' have been heavily scored through. Denman, dressed as a sergeant (copied from BM Satires No. 14776), stands in profile to the right facing a second Denman in general's uniform, who stands full-face, left hand on his hip, his head turned in profile to the left, holding out a document towards his former self with an authoritative gesture. The sergeant, as in BM Satires No. 14776, holds up a huge cylindrical brief inscribed 'KB Gull v Gudgeon Brief for J Doe'; a brief-bag hangs from his shoulder. Both wear a barrister's wig, and both are smartly dressed according to their rank. Dec 4 1830. Hand-coloured etching
