A satire of Pitt's return to office in 1804. Pitt is shown in the chamber of Britannia. Britannia sits listlessly on a bed, holding a sword in one hand. Next to her, leaning against the bed, is her shield and olive branches. Pitt holds aloft a bottle labelled "Constitutional Restorative" as he kicks another man, a caricature of Addington, through the door. Addington is in the process of dropping a bottle labelled "Composing Draft". With his other foot, Pitt steps on the face of a flailing and prostrate Fox, who holds a bottle labelled "Rebublican Balsam" towards Britannia. From Fox's pocket dice and a dice container labelled "Whig Pills" have fallen. Emerging from behind the bed curtains, the figure of Death, a skeleton with the face and plumed bicorne of Napoleon, overturns a table and upsets bottles of medicine and points his sword toward the unsuspecting Britannia.
