Strike - but Hear
This engraving depicts the appearance of John Horne at the bar of the House of Commons on 18th February, 1774. John Horne stands in the foreground, his right arm raised and his left hand is in this breeches pocket. On the right a mace appears. In the background the Speaker sits in his chair. On each side of him are three rows of members, many of them without heads. A number of heads with pendent bag-wigs are floating above the Speaker's head, showing that many of the members have lost their heads in excitement.
