George III on the way to parliament; a mob pummels the King's carriage, shouting "Bread! Peace! No Pitt!"; this becomes the pretext for introducing the "Two Bills." A journeyman named Kyd Wake is arrested for yelling "No George, no War" and sentenced to the pillory, five years imprisonment at hard labor, 1000 pounds sureties and imprisonment until he can come up with the money.
