Hand-coloured etching. 234 x 330mm. 9¼ x 13". Trimmed to image on three sides and laid on card.
Scene on the pavement before the open door of a London house. A fashionable young man addresses an amateur whip, both disregarding the duns who clamour round the latter. He wears the long coat with many capes of a coachman, and is about to mount the box of a coach and four which waits, a groom standing by the near wheeler. On the coach-door is inscribed (in reversed characters) 'No Inside Passenger', above a coronet and crest: an arm holding a whip, with the motto 'Forward'. The duns include a butcher's boy with a long bill. The others, who are partly hidden doff their hats with respectful anxiety.
