"The Duke of Norfolk walks (right to left) in round-shouldered dejection immediately before two Grenadiers, one, Pitt, beating a drum, the other (? Windham) playing a fife. On his back is a placard: 'Washington \ 2000 Men \ make the \ Application. \ Champion of \ Liberty. \ Sovereign \ Majesty. \ People & &.' In front of him Dundas marches stiffly, holding a pike; he wears tartan with a plaid and feathered hat, with advocate's wig and bands. In the background (left) are two spectators: Fox, full-face, his handkerchief to his eye, and Sheridan, turning towards him with a monitory forefinger. From a window on the extreme right looks the King, a telescope to his eye, saying: "Drum away, Billy!! I wish they were all drummd out!!""--British Museum online catalogue.
