"Bust portrait in an oval. Scarcely a caricature but a study in facial expression of a cornered swindler. A man, fashionably dressed, but with dishevelled hair, gazes fixedly to the left, with pursed mouth and wrinkled forehead. Below the design is a list of eight names ('alias' repeated seven times) beginning: 'Mr Thos Ogle (the Notorious Swindler) - by which Name he Married Two Wives', and ending: 'Vide - his Examinations before the Magistrates of Bow Street in Novr 1801'."--British Museum online catalogue.
