Description No. 46. The Speaker's procession enters the House of Commons. The two door-keepers flank the door on the extreme right. A man enters between them, hat in hand. He is followed by Henry Seymour, Sergeant-at-Arms, bearing the Mace, who precedes the Speaker (Manners-Sutton). The Train-bearer (Thomas Earley), like the others in court dress, is on the extreme left.
