About this work
John Bull sits on a padded chair dressed in invalid's dress while eight doctors stand or sit to take his history. Six of them are named as politicians: Lord Grey (third from left, taking pulse); Lord Brougham ("Broom", seated second from left wearing lawyer's wig); Sir Robert Peel (standing first on left?); Henry ("Orator") Hunt (either fourth from left, standing, or third from right, seated?); the Duke of Cumberland, King of Hanover (fourth from right, standing); and Weatherall (presumably Sir Charles Weatherall MP, an opponent of the Reform Bill whose visit to Bristol on 29 October 1831 had resulted in riots)
