“George III, half length, stands in profile to the left, holding a tiny Napoleon on the palm of his right hand, and inspecting him through a spy-glass. He says: “My little friend Grildrig, you have made a most admirable \ “panegyric upon Yourself and Country, but from what I can \ “gather from your own relation & the answers I have with \ “much pains wringed & extorted from you, I cannot but con- \ “-clude you to be one of the most pernicious, little – odious \ “-reptiles, that nature ever suffer’d to crawl upon the surface of the Earth.” He wears military uniform with a bag-wig. The only background is a dark cloud-like shadow across the lower part of the design.”–British Museum online catalogue.
