- Object: The vision.
The Duke of Cumberland starts up from a very long sofa to look towards clouds (left) eddying behind it. He wears full Horse Guards uniform with gauntlets, and declaims (seven lines):
'Have mercy, Heavn! ha! soft—'twas but a dream;
But then so terrible it shakes my soul: . . .
I cannot bear the thought, nor dare repent.'
The words of the title are divided by a circular design like a miniature in a locket-frame: 'The Man wot wiolates the Grave', a tiny copy of BM Satires No. 16011. 12 February 1830
