"Four men smoking long pipes sit stiffly in upright wooden chairs. One (left) in profile to the right, very obese, is an old military officer with a wooden leg; next is a lean man in back view, next a stout man sits full face, and on the right is a thin man in profile to the left seated beside a rectangular table on which is a glass and a large jug. All have expressions of solemn vacuity. They emit clouds of smoke from mouth or pipe which fill the upper part of the bare room. On the wall (right) is a print of Fox, whole length, declaiming with right arm raised."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state
