An Irish member on his way to ye house of Commons. Ink and watercolour drawing over pencil. Published by Ackermann in September 1801 as An Old Member on his way to the House of Commons. A portly old gentleman ogles a lady of the town who decoys him into an establishment in Lisle Street, Soho. A passing coach has amorous couples not only inside but on the back and on top. A crossing sweeper vainly holds out his cap for money from the preoccupied old man.
