The Duke of Cumberland as a sportsman, not caricatured, stands full-face in a wooded glade, with Windsor Castle in the background. Behind him is a pointer. He holds a gun, and raises his left hand. The words are adapted from a song by Hawthorn in Bickerstaffe's comic opera 'Love in a Village', 1762, and ironically compare the 'sinister intriguer' Cumberland with the unselfish, unworldly and beloved Hawthorn.
