Lady Conyngham sits on a chair under which crouches the King; his head, larger than life, draped by her skirts, and hands project (left). She holds a fan, on which is depicted the 'Regent's Bomb', see No. 12799, with (?) the King seated astride it. In her left hand is a tulip. She wears evening dress, jewels, and feathers. On the back of her chair is a (baron's) coronet. She says: "You're Old Quarters how do you like now, My Angel." He says: "O! what a mess I am in, this part of the Country is hotter, than in Hertford!"
