Print entitled 'The High & Mighty Queen receiving an address from the Most Loyal Subjects in the World'. The Queen is depicted standing in her high chair and shouting 'Again again' in the direction of the Punch and Judy puppet show in the background. Her 'Most Loyal Subjects' address her with a long list of bills or tasks, in which she is apparently uninterested. This print satirises Queen Victoria's perceived lack of political control during the early years of her reign. Published in London by Thomas McLean.
