"William's return!!!"; showing Sir William Curtis stepping from a Thames wherry, into the arms of Robert Castlereagh. In the background is Curtis' yacht. This is an allusion to Curtis' visit to the Fleet off Flushing, when he entertained the officers lavishly in August 1809. Below the image is a verse.
