Click for image enlargement
Caricature of wealthy American politician and civic reformer Josiah Quincy, an outspoken apologist for Great Britain and an opponent of the War of 1812.

Quincy stands stiffly on a rocky shore while fish frolic in the sea behind him. He wears a crown and a regal red and gold coat on whose breast is a pair of crossed codfish. He holds a scepter in his left hand, and says, "I Josiah the first do by this my Royal Proclamation announce myself King of New England, Novia Scotia and Passamaquoddy, -- Grand Master of the noble order of the Two Cod Fishes."
