Description

The able Doctor first appeared in The London Magazine for April 1774, accompanying an account of the debate in Parliament on the Boston Port Bill, the “Intolerable Act” responsible for the closing of the Port of Boston. Within a couple of months a pirated version was re-engraved by Paul Revere and appeared in the June 1774 Royal American Magazine. Sneaking a peak under America’s skirt is the Earl of Sandwich, First Lord of the Admiralty.
