"A crowd of elderly Fellows in cap and gown issue from the Gothic doorway of the (?) chapel (left) and turn to the left, to walk in back view under an archway below a mullioned window, towards a quadrangle which is indicated only by the windows of the (?) hall. One enters the Principal's Lodge by a Georgian door (right) facing that of the chapel. He is closely followed by a buxom girl with baskets of fruit, exciting the prurient interest of some of the Fellows. Others buy fruit from another pretty girl. All are burlesqued. The architecture is realistically drawn. On the wall of the Lodge are two placards, one upside down, inscribed 'Vice . . .' and 'Vice Chanr'. The Principal of Brazenose was Frodsham Hodson (1770-1822), Regius Professor of Divinity 1820, see British Museum Satires No. 11534."--British Museum online catalogue
