Sir William Curtis
"An affecting scene in the Downs"; showing Sir William Curtis leaning over the stern of his yacht with a wooden spoon in his hand and a pot of turtle soup boiling away behind him. He is bidding farewell to Robert Castlereagh, who is rowing away in a small boat. The fleet, waiting to sail to Walcheren is in the background. Below the image there is a verse.
