The Anatomist overtaken by the watch in carry'ng off Miss W--ts in a Hamper. A satire on body snatching: the elderly watchman, on the left with a rattle, has discovered the anatomist Dr William Hunter (he has dropped a copy of his lectures) in the act of stealing the body of a young woman, (maybe with the assistance of the central figure, but if so his accomplice is now helping the watch and pointing after him).
