Plate 6 (part only). Twenty-four single figures (six being women), each reading a newspaper, which is quoted and followed by a comment. An adjectival caption describes the comment, e.g.: 'Cojectural'. A fat 'cit' reads: 'It is generally credited that a great Northern power intends no longer to be Neutral. And: Oh! Oh! Puzzling! What is the difference between a Whig and a Tory'; a man in shirt-sleeves scratches his head, saying, "Nay now thes News-paper folks have quite up-set me, for dang it if I can tell." 1 January 1801
