"The Duke of Clarence drags his three children (left to right) in a go-cart. His waistcoat is open, a handkerchief under his hat drapes his head, perspiration pours from his forehead. The boy, an infant replica of his father, holds a pair of reins which are attached to the duke's pocket, and flourishes a whip. Beside him are a little girl hugging a dog, which hides her face except for the eyes, and a crying infant whose features, though infantine, are those of her father. The crest on the cart is a chamber-pot (cf. BMSat 7835, &c.) surmounted by a crown. From the duke's pockets project a toy battleship, a coral and bells, a toy windmill, and a doll. Mrs. Jordan, in a dress of masculine cut, walks beside the cart, intent on the part which she is studying from an open book ('The Spoil'd Child', see BMSat 7835): 'Act IIId enter Little Pickle'. A signpost (right) points (left) 'From Richmond', (right) 'To Bushy'. A sandy bank with trees forms a background."--British Museum online catalogue.
