Title
The deil'd awa wi th' exciseman
Description
The Devil is dancing through the streets waving a fiddle and carrying away an exciseman, who has his hands over his ears. A small devil follows behind playing a drum and wearing a tri-cornered hat. The street is lined by people including children who are all laughing at the man's plight. One old woman is waving a bottle of alcohol at him as he gets carried away. The crowd are standing outside The Tappit Hen tavern. The exciseman's gun and book are lying on the ground.
