- Object: My best Friend
Satire on a man named Flint. The head of a military officer, grossly caricatured, in profile to the right within a circle formed by a snake. His unkempt hair is in a small pigtail queue. The outside circle is engraved:
"He's Ugly, He's False, His Friends he'll betray
In this, & in that, & in that kind of way"
On each side of the circle are military emblems: a flag, a tent, a pile of drums, a row of halberds. Fourteen lines of verse below. 20 August 1781
