Sir Pitt's last Stage

Sir Pitt's last Stage

William Makepeace Thackeray

Wood engraving

c.1861

Illustration for Chapter 40, Thackeray's Vanity Fair: "All the blinds are pulled down at the Hall and Rectory: the church bell was tolled, and the chancel hung in black; and Bute Carwley didn't go to a coursing meeting, but went and dine quietly at Fuddlestone, where they thought about his deceased brother and young Sir Pitt over their port."

(The picture shows Sir Pitt just before his death.)
