Peel the political conjuror.
Sir Robert Peel, prime minister of Great Britain, (1788-1850), balancing on his chin a ladder with the rungs labelled "Catholic Emancipation", "Maynooth", "Colleges" and the pope with key of St. Peter sitting at the top of the ladder. The Duke of Wellington, (1769-1852), and Sir James Graham, (1792-1861), play musical instruments behind Peel. Watching Peel along with the crowd is Daniel O'Connell, (1775-1847), as a little boy, wearing his green velvet Mullaghmast cap.
