Cartoon-The able doctor or America swallowing the bitter draught
Revolutionary War-era political cartoon published in the London Magazine, entitled "The able doctor; or America swallowing the bitter draught." Depicts Lord North, with the "Boston Port Bill" extending from a pocket, forcing tea (the Intolerable Acts) down the throat of a partially draped Native female figure representing "America," whose arms are restrained by Lord Mansfield, while Lord Sandwich, a notorious womanizer, restrains her feet and peeks up her skirt. Britannia, standing behind "America", turns away and shields her face with her left hand. Image published: 1774.
