- Object: John Bull out of all patience!!
John Bull, riding the British lion, advances across the Channel to the French coast (l.) where, on the top of a cliff, a little Napoleon, sword in hand, runs full speed after two disappearing French soldiers on the extreme left. He says: "Dat is right my brave Friends - take to your heels - for here is dat dam Jean Bool - Coming over on his Lion." John, dressed as a light-horse volunteer, sabre in hand, shouts: "I'll be after you my lads - do you think I'll stay at home waiting for you - if you mean to come d------n it Why dont you come - do you think I Put on my regimentals for nothing. The lion registers purposeful ferocity. 16 August 1803
