Abstract:
"John Bull, a hideously carbuncled 'cit', looks down grinning at a semicircle of men on a much smaller scale who surround his half-length figure. They are (left to right) Napoleon, wearing a huge bicorne, who looks up to say 'Ships. Colonies and Commerce'. A man in military uniform, quite unlike Alexander, his back to Napoleon, says: "Russian Vengeance attend John Bull. A fat Dutch burgher puffs smoke towards John, saying, III eternally smoke him". A scowling man in civilian dress with tousled hair says: "Let him tremble at the name of America". Prussia, a handsome military officer in place of the damaged soldier who after Tilsit represented Frederick William III in English caricature, says: "Beware of Prussia". A similar officer (Francis I) says: "Austria will never Pardon him". A Spaniard wearing a cocked hat says: "Spanish Fury overtake him". A scowling face says: "Let him beware of Denmark". John says: "Dont make such a riot you little noisy Brats, all your bustle to me is no more than a storm in a Chamber pot"."--British Museum online catalogue.
