Summary

Description
English: Cincinnatus in Retirement. falsely supposed to represent Jesuit-Pad driven back to his native Potatoes. see Romish Common-Wealth.

SUMMARY: Cartoon showing Edmund Burke, as an Irish Jesuit, seated at a table eating potatoes from a pot labeled "Relick No. 1. used by St. Peter." Upon the appointment of Shelburne, following the death of Rockingham, Burke resigned from his position as Rockingham's secretary in protest.

Burke is portrayed as a Jesuit because he supported the 1778 Relief Act which relaxed restrictions on the rights of Catholics. The poverty of the Irish is parodied by the potatoes. Catholicism is parodied by the pictures on the wall, the mutilated crucifix, the pot labeled as a relic of St. Peter, and the demons dancing under the table.

MEDIUM: 1 print : etching, hand-colored.

CREATED/PUBLISHED: [London] : Pubd. by Eh. D'Achery, 1782 Augt. 23d.
