Paull's head and shoulders emerge from a long table, covered with papers, at which he has been writing; he is terror-struck at a beam of light issuing from the head of Wellesley which appears among clouds in the upper right. Wellesley looks down at Paull with raised forefinger. The papers on the table are blown about by a blast from Wellesley. Under the table partly raised cloth reveals sacks of money: '10-000 L R' and '20-000 Lac Rup'. An enormously long scroll hangs from the table by Paull, lying in fused folds on the ground. Piled up on the left of the table are two large bundles; a large bundle of 'Love Letters' lies on a package of 'Eastern delights or the Loves of India Manuscript'; this stands on a large volume: 'Portr[aits of t[he] Beauties of India'. Against it lies a small book: 'Man of Feeling [by Mackenzie]'. A paper is 'the Revenge'. With these is a small picture of an Indian woman holding a sword. Behind these piled-up objects stands a figure of 'Wisdom' with wide eyes, enormous ears, and two fingers held to his mouth to keep it closed. Above, discarded on a shelf, is a battered volume: 'Duty of Man'. On the wall behind Paull is a long framed picture of the Woman taken in Adultery: three-quarter length figures of Christ, the Elders, and the woman, with a bold inscription: 'He that is without sin among you let him cast the first stone.' A signature, 'Coricio', is perhaps intended for Correggio.
