Consequences of a successful French Invasion...
The second of four prints executed by Gillray in a series of 20 proposed by the Scot, Sir John Dalrymple. In response to the invasion scare of early 1798, Sir John approached Gillray to produce a series of loyalist, anti-Jacobin prints that 'might rouse all the People to an active Union against that Invasion; at a Time when above five Millions of Vultures, with Beaks and Claws, hover over them; and when the Indolence and Divisions of the people themselves are more alarming than all foreign Enemies' (D. Hill, 'Mr. Gillray, The Caricaturist', p.74.)
