Featured print side: Plate # 132 - Gillray satirizes and attach upon the royal carriage on October 29, 1797, as the King traveled in his carriage to open Parliament.  In this caricature, George III seems unaware that the whig opposition (represented by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Charles James Fox and Lord Lansdowne) are attaching his coach, driven by Prime Minister William Pitt.  A mob throws fruit, stones and a cat.  Gillray criticizes not only the mob and th Whigs, but the government over-reaction, as can be seen by Britannia being trampled by the horses.

Reversed side of Featured print Plate # 134 - "Copenhagen House", a satire of the public meetings of the London Correspondence Society, comparing them to the revolt of Jack Cada and Wat Tyler, as satirized by Shakespeare.
