"The Duchess of Devonshire stands, her feet apart, raising her skirt to allow a fox (Fox) to take cover under her petticoats. She turns her head in profile to the right towards a huntsman on foot who halloos to his hounds, "Tally O my good Dogs"; his two dogs bark, "No Coalition" and "No India Bill". The duchess says, "My dear Fox get into Cover". She looks very-handsome and bold, a sash round her waist streams out in the wind; in her hat are the usual ostrich plumes (cf. British Museum Satires No. 6530, &c), fox's brush, and favour inscribed 'Fox'. The fox crouches under her feet, looking round at his pursuers in alarm."--British Museum online catalogue, description of a later state.
