The Five ALL'S - John Kay
Satirical cartoon by Scottish caricaturist John Kay (1742-1826) entitled 'The Five All's', depicting five characters and their interpretations of their reltion to 'All'. From the left, the Vicar states "I Pray For All", the Barristers states "I Plead For All", then the Farmer states "I Maintain For All", then the Military Officer states "I Fight For All" and in a wicked twist, the devil then states "I Take All"!
