Britannia weeps, and her Lion registers anger, beside the tomb of Caroline The Injured Queen of England, topped by a large urn on which is her bust portrait. The text includes the funeral prayer, ‘A Dirge’ and ‘An Elegy . . .’ (28 11.): 11. 7-10: ‘A seperation hardly to be borne, Her only Daughter from her arms was torn! And next discarded–driven from her home, An unprotected Wanderer to roam!’ The verses below Cut XII end: ‘For the King shall be Judg’d with the poor of the earth, And, perhaps the poor man will be greater than he. Until that great day we leave Caroline’s wrongs, Meantime, may, “Repentance” her foes o’ertake; O grant it kind POWER, to whom alone it belongs’ AMEN. Here an end of this Hist’ry we make.”–British Museum online catalogue.
