- (Description and comment from M. Dorothy George, 'Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum', X, 1952)
For Denman's defence of the Queen see No. 13948, &c. He was appointed Common Serjeant (a judicial officer who assists the Recorder) by the Corporation of London in 1822, after an election contested on political grounds. Like Brougham, see No. 14775, his patent of precedence was withheld and he obtained it only (Oct. 1828) through the good offices of Wellington.
Similar in manner to No. 14819.
