- "J.P. Kemble stoops, with hands on knees, while a small and sprightly child, young Roscius, supports himself on his shoulders and is about to leap over his head. He says: "Alas! is it come to this Ah! woe is me Seeing what I have seen Seeing what I see!! Oh Roscious - ". Kemble wears theatrical dress, with a cloak and half-boots. The boy also wears half-boots but is dressed in a childish way, with an open collar and a sash, with no cloak, but with tight pantaloons and boots like those of Kemble. [According to Grego both are dressed 'in the habit then customary for Hamlet'. Kemble is so dressed, except that his cloak is short, not long as in Lawrence's whole length portrait.]."--British Museum online catalogue.
