Charles Grey (1764-1845) as a schoolmaster standing on a low dais in profile to right, addressing nine schoolboys, or Tories. Brougham (1778-1868) stands full-face, as usher, holding a big birch-rod. Four pupils sit on the front bend behind which sit another four; Wellington (1769-1852) stands behind on a stool wearing a fool's cap, like an extinguisher, decorated with bells. Two of the pupils include Lyndhurst (1772-1863) and Goulburn (1784-1856), wearing spectacles.
