"Joseph Bonaparate, the newly crowned King of Spain, stands at centre wearing doublet, slashed breeches, crown, medallion and cloak, and turned in beseeching attitude to left, where four Spaniards are standing; Joseph says, 'For this kind and flattering reception much thanks. behold the Brother of the great Napolean come to reign over you for your goods.' One of the Spanish men, with a long sword, says to another whose hand is on his dagger, 'yes Comrade and for our Chattels too if I guess right.'; behind them, a woman holding a dagger says to another, 'He was bred an Attorney and w'eel soon eject him from Spain'. Behind Joseph at right stand his French supporters, one holding a flag lettered 'Vive le Roi' over Joseph's head, and angrily crying, 'Will no one Huzza - - will no one ring the Bells - if you dont make a noise you shall all fall by the Royal Bayonet.', a cry of 'Vive le Roy Huzza' arising from a pike-carrying crowd behind."--British Museum online catalogue
