Abstract:
"A British and a French sailor addressing one another. The British sailor stands full-face, a club in his right hand, his left hand on his hip. He wears a crowned hat, a handkerchief knotted round his neck, and wide, knee-length trousers. He scowls threateningly. The Frenchman, very thin, stands facing him, in profile to the left; he grins, saying "Ha! Ha! we beata You": the Englishman answers "you Lie". The Frenchman wears a feathered hat, ruffled shirt, long trousers, and a cutlass. His hair is in a very long pigtail queue, tied with a bow of ribbon. In the background a naval battle is indicated by ships and clouds of smoke slightly sketched. Cf. BMSat 5674."--British Museum online catalogue.
