Two demons (r.) hold up a long scroll headed ' A Suit in Chancery'; the rolled end rests on the ground. Five lawyers (l.) jostle each other to get places for the race towards it. The foremost presses the others back, saying, "Start fair Gentlemen, if you Please". Three of them wear long gowns; the others are in ordinary dress, but one of them wears bands. ? 1803
