    For the version of this drawing in the Royal Collection (RL 13692), see Kate Heard, 'The Comic Art of Thomas Rowlandson', exh. cat., 2013, no. 56. Other versions are in Southampton City Art Gallery (4/1973) and the Yale Center for British Art (B1975.3.41). One of them may have been in Rowlandson's posthumous sale (Sotheby's, 1828, lot.333, sold for one guinea). Grego lists two versions in his own collection and another, dated 1802, in the collection of W. T. B. Ashley; he also lists a print, but there is no impression in the BM or Royal Collection.
