His hands are raised above his head to clutch at a mass of fringed cushions on which is the crown of 'Spain', with a sceptre. On the wall is pinned a notice: 'Notary Public Bayonne'. Four clerks sit facing each other at the desk he has left, which has double slopes, divided by the low rail from which he steps. One asks: "Why Joseph wither art thou going"; he looks down answer: "Whither - but to fill my high destiny? And like my noble Brother Sway tne Sceptre of another." The other clerks say respectively: "But proverbs tell of many Slips Between the tankard & the lips And really I am apt to give The proverb credit as I live" and "He must needs go whom the Devil drives and should it cost his Neck; Ownds! what a prodigious step for a Notary's clerk."--British Museum online catalogue.

He says: "Plague take it! I never met with so difficult a 'passage' before - But if I can once get over the 'Flats', we shall do pretty well for you see the 'Key' will then change to B sharp." Behind Napoleon and on the r. stand the Russian bear on his hind legs, muzzled, and blowing a French horn. He says: "Why that is 'Natural' enough brother Boney though this 'French horn' of yours seems rather out of Order I think."
