Print, The Present State of Great Britain
The lower margin reads: "THE PRESENT STATE OF GREAT BRITAIN./ Pub'd by W. Humphrey N.o 227 Strand/ J. Phillips Fecit"
Standing half-asleep, John Bull, representing Great Britain, holds a pole with a liberty cap that Indian America is stealing. A Dutchman is robbing John Bull of his purse, symbolic of the trade Holland had gained while England was embroiled in wars. A Frenchman rushes toward Bull from the other side but is halted by a figure in Scottish attire. England was actively recruiting troops in Scotland at the time. However, the Scottish were reluctant to participate in the war, and are seldom pictured defending England.
