    Shows two smartly dressed businessmen tied to a pillory. Around their necks hang signs marked 'Cooked Accounts' and 'False Weights and Measures', while near them stands Mr Punch who shakes his fist at them and holds the hammer with which he nailed them to the pillory. The caption reproduces a dictionary definition of pillory. The illustration is probably a comment on the recent scandalous financial dealings in the London, Chatham, and Dover Railway Company.
