|Main Creator:||Tell, William, fl.1844 artist.|
The devil standing between two judges or magistrates. The judge on the right of the devil says "They can't say I did it, I am not accountable for my Butler!!!". The judge on the left of the devil, holding a book "A List of a Select[ed?] Jury", says "There is a Law I've discovered Catholics shall not be tried by Catholics". The devil is thinking "P'shaw! Don't mind them". The devil's hooves stand on a torn piece of paper with the words "Emancipation a nullity" and "Bill of Rights". The butler runs out the door to the left of the drawing carrying a piece of paper in his left hand "Just drop't out I have the 60!!". There is a portrait on the wall with hte name "Jeffreys". Beside this portrait is a notice saying "A Vacant panel for another Worthy". The bookcase to the right of the drawing holds books on penal law in Ireland.
