Jug, circa 1809 depicting Colonel Wardle and Miss Taylor.  Colonel Wardle MP for Okehampton brought a motion against Frederick Duke of York, commander-in-chief of the army, alleging indiscretion with Mary Anne Clarke and corruption for promoting officers from whom Clarke had taken bribes.  The Duke resigned but was re-appointed in 1811.
