|Conspirators, or Delegates in Council.|
This 1817 print by George Cruikshank shows some of the most infamous spies of the era.
On the far left, Lord Sidmouth (with a cane) is being given a paper by former Irish spy Thomas Reynolds (who was given a consulship). A huge ‘green bag’ full of Radical papers sits on the table. Seated on the right, from left to right are spies John Castle (with his back to the reader), William Oliver, then Canning and Castlereagh. On the far right, honest John Bull looks through the window, horrified by the proceedings. Courtesy Library of Congress, LC-USZC4-6856.
