Hallett’s Hint, or Cheap Traveling for Berkshire Electors
Hover your mouse over to magnify
A procession of ragamuffins, some riding on broom-sticks, advances towards a signpost on the right pointing To Reading, on which sits the Devil, pointing out the way. They wave their hats and cheer frantically, shouting Hallett forever. One shouts: By J - -s I’m his home made freeholder Huzzar; another says: I’ll register his deeds! The Devil: I have registered them already. A man at the head of the procession, better-dressed than the others, wears leg-irons; a paper inscribed Newgate Callender hangs from his pocket. Among the marchers are two braying asses, and a gaggle of geese. Behind a hedge and in the background is a crowd of astonished spectators.
