- "The Duke of Bedford stands in a stockyard in profile to the left, the fingers of his right hand dug into the flank of an immensely fat ox. He is not caricatured and is plainly dressed, wearing a round hat and heavy top-boots, holding a stock-whip. He says: "Ah, here's your sort! - here's your Nine-Inch Fat my boys! "O how he will cut up! (as my old friend Burke said!) - "how he will Tallow in the cawl and on the Kidneys!" Behind are three corn-stacks, trees, two other oxen, some very fat sheep (right). In the foreground are geese (left), and a pig (right) eating from a heap of carrots and turnips."--British Museum online catalogue.
