"George IV, with a swathed and gouty leg, stands in front of the throne, supported by Lady Conyngham and a crutch, his arm round her shoulder. Peel stands partly hidden by a curtain and immediately behind Wellington, his mouthpiece; he speaks into a speaking-trumpet, the stem of which passes from Wellington's ear to his mouth from which the trumpet projects. From this mouthpiece issue the words: I feel happy in being allowed thro any medium, however degrading to communicate my expressions of sincere devotion TO-- The King interrupts him: PLACE--hat will do Arthur, always keep between me and that fellow -- he rings such a peil in our Ears. Lady Conyngham turns to the King, pointing to the trumpet: This is a contrivance of my own -- I hate the sight of him & now your M-y can keep him at a distance. She wears a towering coiffure of loops of hair decorated with flowers. Beside Peel: To join with Christian Jew or Turk In doing any dirty Work."--British Museum online catalogue.
