Four drivers, each with title in the lower border, each holding a characteristic whip.  A . Cab . A small man, holding a short-lashed whip, and wearing shoes and short trousers, says: Crabroller Sir?  A . Jarvey . (a hackney-coachman). A taller and broader man with patched double-breasted coat, breeches, and half-boots, touches his hat: Vont a Charot your honor werry good pair of fast trotters.  The Long Trot. A mail-coach driver, his huge breadth accentuated by bow-legs and caped greatcoat with vast pockets. He wears broad-brimmed hat, neck-cloths, nosegay, breeches, and top-boots, and holds a small package: To Sally Cowslip. He shouts: I say you Joe look at that ere fur Leader.  An Out & Outer. A flashy amateur whip, much whiskered, pulls on a glove, saying, Four rumens arnt they best Team in Town D—n me. He wears a bell-shaped top-hat with curling brim, tail-coat with deep collar and high tight sleeves, white riding-breeches, and neat top-boots. Sept 12 1827 Hand-coloured etching
