Summary
Print shows Charles James Fox seated at center of a table and raising his glass, "My Soul & Body, both, upon the Toast," to a toast offered by Joseph Priestley, who stands at left holding up an overflowing chalice and an empty communion plate, "The---head, here!" Seated at left are Sir Cecil Wray and Richard B. Sheridan; seated to the right are Horne Tooke and Theophilus Lindsey, and behind them stand caricatured dissenters. Hanging on the wall above Fox is a picture of St. Paul's Cathedral, titled "A Pigs Stye - a view from Hackney," with three pigs eating at a trough.
