Notes This engraving appeared in December 1783, just after the Foreign Secretary Charles James Fox had published his India Bill. Fox is dressed in oriental costume and holds a flag inscribed 'King of Kings' in Greek. He rides an elephant on which Lord North's face is superimposed, representing the alliance of the two secretaries of state. Edmund Burke, the statesman and actual author of the 1783 India Bill, blows a bugle, proudly announcing their arrival at the East India Company's headquarters in Leadenhall Street. Only the raven, sitting on a distant chimney top, hints at impending disaster.
Names Charles James Fox, Edmund Burke, Lord North, Carlo Khan
