Last Dying Speech and Confession. Ink and watercolour drawing over pencil. Below the drawing there is an incription that reads: '12 Months in London November'. An old woman streetseller cries her wares - a broadsheet of the latest conviction and execution for something as petty as pickpocketing which was punishable by death until 1808. Undeterred a boy picks the pocket of a passing gentleman. A mother with two children, one in her arms, and a dog can be seen in the background.
