The Stamp Act is put to rest in a funeral procession on a London quay. George Grenville carries the coffin and Lord Bute follows as chief mourner. This was a very popular print, frequently copied. Dorothy George indicates that the original version of this cartoon had this inscription, which is a play on the French verb to love stamps as well as to America. However, this is obviously a crude, pirated version printed to capitalize on the cartoon's popularity.
