This plate is among those produced between 1785 and 1790, and was subjected to several alterations. In the original cartoon the Indian is undraped, the figure of France wears a crown, and her shield bears the three fleur-de-lis. This version shows the Indian undraped. A later version shows the figure of France uncrowned, the shield without the royal insignia, and a different flag.
