The Prince of Wales, Mrs. Fitzherbert, and Charles Fox are seated at a rectangular table playing cards. Fox, who is full face, holds one card above his head, about to play it, looking fixedly at Mrs. Fitzherbert. His other hand is under the table. His opponents hold two cards, and have taken no tricks. The profiles of the Prince and his partner are silhouetted.
