|Commentary||At Barataria Island, governor Sancho is not allowed to eat by doctor Pedro Recio who points with his wand to the dishes that a servant must take away.
The majordomo, secretary and other figure observe the scene laughing.
Cruikshank's personal caricature style is very remarkable; notice the expressions of the figures.
