Footnotes

  • Here Gillray shows Fox bent in devotion to the enshrined principles of Thomas Paine’s 'The Rights of Man', a book of which Fox did not, in fact, approve. His Whig Parliamentary colleagues appear as cherubim wearing the cap of Liberty over his shoulder. St Anne’s Hill was the small country retreat near Chertsey where Fox lived with his mistress and later wife Mrs. Elizabeth Armistead. Fox had constructed a small Temple of Friendship there which Gillray satirises as a gallery of Whig revolutionary rogues.
