Four lines of verse inscribed in 2 columns on either side of title: Did you know the lad that courts you, he not long need in vain. Prince of songs of dance of sports. You scarce will meet his like again.
Print shows the King, Queen, and Princesses standing by the pump at Cheltenham, receiving with horror a post-boy (left) who holds out a placard inscribed 'Ninth Days Poll Majority for Lord John Townshend 218'. A bewildered yokel stands under the pump, letting the contents of his water-jug pour over the King's foot. The King staggers backwards and is supported by a man whose dismayed face is in shadow. The Queen, horror-struck, stares at the messenger; two princesses clasp their hands in dismay. The post-boy wears spurred jack-boots and carries a postilion's whip. Behind him (left) is a signpost on which stands a raven; one arm points to 'London', the other 'To Cheltenham': the pump is under shady trees. A church and houses are indicated in the background. Cf. George.
