The Royal Allied Oak and Self Created Mushroom Race.
The Royal Allied Oak and Self Created Mushroom Race. Behold the Oak, whose firm fix'd stay Doth check Oppression's course, Whose slightest branch can ne'er decay, While strong with Virtue's force...The Mushroom Race you have to seek In weeds about the Root, Who scarce dare at the Oak to peep, Or at its Princely Fruit.
J. Field del.t Etch'd by Heath.

On the ground are two mushrooms and plants, in which are hidden the profiles of Napoleon Buonaparte; his son Napoleon (King of Rome) and brothers Louis, Jerome and Joseph; Charles XIV John of Sweden; and Joachim Murat.
