"Two designs on one plate. Above, the Duke of York sits, pen in hand, writing a love-letter, but turns from his table to declaim towards the window (right): To morrow I inspect my regiment--and then for my Dearest--Dearest--Dearest--Love. A negro servant (left) wearing a jewelled turban regards him with dismay: Bless my Massa what be de matter with him--him in love I fear--Sambo once be in love with bad Woman but him repent. On table and floor are papers inscribed: O Love is the cause of my Folly, My Amiable Girl; My Dearest Dear I hope to be in your Arms; Love Letters. Below, an elderly military officer without sword or gorget, scowls through an eye-glass at a pert boy (right) in uniform with sword and gorget. He says: Can I believe my eyes, why this is the little foot boy--who waited on us at the house of a Lady of a certain description. The boy (Carter) answers, hands on hips, I beg Sir you will not come for to go, to affront a gemmen--."--British Museum online catalogue.
