Description
[BMC 6448] British Museum online: Fox and North dressed as nurses: Fox stands outside a house, his hand on an empty cradle on which is a notice 'Reynard State Cradle Wrocker'; North (left) looks from a window above the open door, holding out a dirty cloth and saying, "A Sh------n piece of Buisness, this Susan - I am afraid we Shall not in a hurry be able to get out the Stain". Fox, his back to North, answers, "And Stinks most horridly, it will require great Judgement to bring it to its former Colour". A placard on the house is inscribed, 'Wanted a Child to Nurse, by Rachel N-----h, & Susan F-----x, lately removed from St James's. Can be well Recommended from the three Feathers in Pall - Mall - '. (An allusion to Carlton House, and the close association between Fox and the Prince of Wales. One of many satires on the defeat of the Coalition.; BMC 6448 [British Museum.
