A Cardinal-Legate with attendant clergy gives absolution to Lyndhurst, Peel, and Wellington who kneel before a throne on a dais, their hands in prayer. Lyndhurst has the Purse of the Great Seal under his knees and the mace on the floor beside him. Attendant clergy include two obese monks or friars, one of whom holds a candle, the other a grotesque image of the Virgin. Also in attendance is a Jesuit who holds a triple cross and claps a rosary and a thin, sly-looking priest who also holds a candle
Title etched below image.
The figure with hat and cane is a device of Paul Pry, pseudonym of William Heath.
