Here's the Duke of Portland." The toast is enthusiastically received.

London Pub by SW Fores N.3 Piccadilly December 1 1794.
Scarce hand-coloured etching by Isaac Cruikshank; 370 x 280mm (14½ x 11"). On paper watermarked 'J Whatman.' Small margins. Tears repaired with acid free tape. Some cockling and light staining at top left.
With her right hand outstretched and left on her breast, the tall, attractive young lady bends to the right as though she is performing a passionate song. A shorter, stockier woman (possibly Lady Buckinghamshire, Albinia Hobart?) is seen looking up at her from the right. She is clutching a fan and is sporting a hat. Both have partially exposed breasts and short-waisted gowns, a look that suits one but not the other. The singer wears a large scarf around her neck, with the ends tucked in at the waist. Her hair has two upright ostrich feathers, and her ears are adorned with big rings. She is protesting with her right hand above a platter of tartlets and jellies that a footman is holding. His visage and outdated attire are horrifyingly parodied. A full-length portrait of a woman wearing broad, hooped petticoats, a lace apron, and a flat hat in the style of around 1740 hangs on the wall. Her right hand is in a small muff.
