"A scene at Court; beefeaters flank the dais of the empty throne (right). George IV stands before it, turning his back angrily on Prince Leopold, who bows distractedly, dropping his cocked hat with its field-marshal's plume. The King: "You smell of Brandynburgh ['y' being scored through and replaced with 'e']." Prince Leopold: "I have performed my Duty as a Husband to the satisfaction of the Country-- & I hope to do the same as a Son, & a Man;." Others at the levée register astonishment. Behind (left) a man in court-dress kneels facing the King, but is dragged away by three courtiers. He says: "Is this the answer to my Petition." One of the three replies: "Yes this is the Way we answer." Below the design: 'We've heard of the rump Parliment, Rump Chickens & rump't Dames [British Museum Satires No. 6716]. But of all the boasted rumps we've heard, This one most notice claims. A Pugilist he rumps his man, The Dustman rumps his Brother, But here observe the R--l plan , A Prince must rump his mother Rather than thus forego the Man, And virtuous feelings smother 'Gainst Persecution boldly stand, To save an Injured Mother.'"--British Museum online catalogue
