The scrutiny, or examination of the filth
'The scrutiny, or examination of the filth', 1784. Five men, holding their noses and examining chamber pots, with devils in the background on either side. One man is vomiting. three men and both the devils are making remarks. The pots are inscribed Poll book, 1784. This is a satire on the demand for scrutiny of votes by Charles Wray after the 1784 general election. Wray finished third behind Viscount Hood and Charles John Fox in the race for the two seats in the Westminster constituency, but contested the poll.
