Print offering a satirical take on Viscount Deerhurst's recently defeated challenge to the previous members for Worcester at the election in 1812. As well as commenting on Deerhurst's election expenses and the 'death' of the Coventry family interest, the print includes, in the distance on the right, a sketch of the chairing of the re-elected members, Abraham Robarts and William Gordon, at Worcester.
