(2) GREAT FIGHT ON LORDS' GROUND BETWEEN PAT PLUNKETT AND THE SWELL LONDONDERRY. (No. 16973)
A fight in the Lords; Brougham, on the Woolsack, watch in hand, is timekeeper. Plunket, in his Chancellor's wig and gown, gives a knock-out blow to Londonderry, who falls. Plunket's second is Grey (right), while Ellenborough (a dandy) holding a large bottle, inscribed 'Lavender', is Londonderry's bottle-holder.
See No. 16970. The title is a punning allusion to Lord's cricket ground, then as now in St. John's Wood.
