"Brougham's state carriage extends across the design with the horses' heads approaching the arch leading to Horse Guards Parade (right), where the muzzle of the Regent's Bomb ... is seen. Life Guardsmen try to stop the coach; an officer has fallen awkwardly on the cobbles. Brougham leans from the window holding a bulky mace in his right hand; with the left hand he points to the right, saying: 'With Law's proud emblem glittering in this hand, Who dares the Champion of Reform withstand? Go, Bloodless Warriors! seek your Chiefs, & say The stern School Master's in the Field to-day'. The coachman lashes the horses, the two footmen behind the coach are grinning. The coach has many coroneted crests, ... and a coat of arms, correct except for the supporters who are broom-girls ... and with Brougham's motto 'Pro Rege, Lege Grege'. See British Museum catalogue
