A ragged Frenchman kneels behind him holding out another batch of ships on a tray, saying, "Sacredieu Citoyens make a Haste wit one autre Fleet, den we will shew you how to make one grande Invasion." Beside the oven (right) a French peasant, more ragged and abject, approaches with a heavy receptacle inscribed: 'Ruination, Botheration, Confiscation, Requisition, Plunderation, Limitation, Execution, Constitution, Fraternization, Naturalization, Expedition, Abolition, Cutthroatation & Damnation'. Behind the Dutchman a Spaniard supports on his head a tray of cannon, saying, "How! That Nelson wit one Arm & Eye, can take our Ships by Dozens then vat shall we do against the autres, wid two Arms and Eyes, dey will have two dozen at a Time". John Bull answers, a hand on his fat paunch, "What? you could not find that out before you stupid Dupes, but since you began the fun you shall keep on - So work away Damn ye else Jack Tar will soon be idle". Behind (left) a grinning Jack Tar capers, with a large tray of ships on his head, saying, "Push on keep moving [cf. BMSat 9010] I'll soon come for another Cargo for Old England for ever Huzza."--British Museum online catalogue.
