O'Donoghue 147 ("anon")
George III stresses in this speech that he was "born and educated in this country".
The portrait bears similarities to a mezzotint by William Dickinson and Thomas Watson.
For further broadsides reproducing the same speech, see BM 1856-7-12-1094, and BM R.9-40 (and its duplicate BM 1864-3-9-294)..
