A French print. The three walk arm-in-arm (left to right) in a paved space outside the ground floor of a building with large barred windows. The first two wear top-hats and are typical tall Englishmen as depicted by the French (see No. 12365, &c.); all wear tail-coats and trousers; the third, Bruce, is boyish-looking and shorter than the others. The two officers gesticulate, talking together. A turnkey (left) descends a flight of steps (left) from a door, holding keys and a pitcher. In the yard are (bare) trees; an arched trellis with (leafless) shrubs trained over it covers the steps, facing which are ornamental shrubs in pots. A man, wearing a top-hat, watches the three prisoners from behind the bars of a window (right). May 1816
