Illustrated t.p. depicts man hanging from the side of a hot air balloon in flight labeled "Forlorn Hope." The gondola is spilling pickles, pork, stout, ham, sausages, an umbrella, and a cane. The moon, sun, and a building (with faces) look on as a comet (with face, possibly Halley's comet of 1835) sends a beam of light toward the man. "T.H. Jones."
