This letterpress advertises 'The original stone eater' who was on show at Mr Hatch's, Trunk-maker, at 404 Strand, opposite the Adelphi. This phenomenon gave the idea for the satires by Dent of George III swallowing the precious stones given him by Warren Hastings (BMSat7287) and of Fox eating his words (BMSat7390). This copy of the broadside is a duplicate of J.4-252, and is pasted on the verso of J.4-15.
