Truth and Falsehood

Four aphorisms in one... throws a little light on the political parties of our own time as well as Clares!  View the picuture full size and you will see how accurate was Cruikshank's vision of the 1820s and our own times.

"Truth is always assented with the fewest words & falsehood with the most protestations.   Truth simply thinks you believe her & falsehood wishes to make you believe her."

Pet MS A18 p240r
