A satire of a proposed tax affecting brewers and the alleged substitution of quassia for hops. Quassia is the wood, bark, or root of a South American tree from which a bitter decoction is obtained for medicinal purposes. In the print, which shows a triumphal procession of an African woman symbolizing quassia being carried on a barrel, various political figures of the day, including Fox, are satirized.
