State Bill-Stickers - Sticking themselves
William Tell delt.
|Main Creator:||Tell, William, fl.1844 artist.|
A group of men posting bills on a wall. One of the posters refers to the repeal meeting of Mullaghmast. A soldier on a ladder is pasting a proclamation banning meetings at Clontarf. He complains "Damn those rough Irish Bricks I can't stick them Bob". Bob is at the foot of the ladder in an orange coat. He says "Come my little Corporal try the other end if Paste won't do Try Stell". They are aided by two men who hold a lantern and a torch. Daniel O'Connell, dressed in a green coat, watches them with another man beside him. O'Connell says "Moral Force Tom won before - seven millions to one it wins now Those Dark Deeds Shall Come to Light". The other man says "Say but the word father of my Country".
