- Object: The four greens!!!
Four men, all smiling, all in coats of a different shade of green, all with a caption in large letters.  Pea-Green. A slim sharp-featured dandy, much whiskered and moustached, wearing a top-hat, and holding a cane, looks through a rectangular monocle.  Sap-Green. An oafish, lank-haired, bandy-legged fellow, stands with a round hat in both hands, grinning broadly.  Bottle-Green. An unusually fat man, carbuncled and gouty, staggers tipsily, holding a bottle and putting a glass to his mouth. From his pocket hangs a paper: Charles Wright's Champagne Opera Collo[nade].  Ever-Green. An aged dandy, decrepit but jaunty, walks along, riding-switch in hand. He wears riding-breeches and gaiters on shrunken legs. 16 January 1827

- (Description and comment from M. Dorothy George, 'Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum', X, 1952)
 Pea-Green: ?'Pea-Green' Haynes, see BM Satires 14711, &c.
 Bottle-Green: ?A portrait of C. W., the wine-merchant, a well-known character, whose lavish advertisements in 'Bell's Life' were illustrated by humorous woodcuts (e.g., 17 June 1827: 'Champagne, Five and Sixpence, the cheapest in town.') He was noted for giving masquerades as a speculation, at which champagne flowed, cf. No. 15182. He was the son of a butcher and became insane in 1830. 'Bell's Life', 9 Dec. 1832.)
 Ever-Green: He resembles Skeffington (1771-1850), see vols, vii-ix and No. 14540.
