Notes (Hamnet): 
A satire on the relations of the prince of Wales with the coalition--cf. no. 6535 in the British Museum Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires.
Notes (Hamnet): 
A scene near the shore of the island; the wrecked ship with splintered masts, lying on the shore (right), is the 'Royal George'. The Prince of Wales as Trinculo (left) stands in profile to the right holding a bottle of wine in his right hand, addressing Charles James Fox who is Stephano; he says: "Give me dear woman - and give me good wine - and you may govern all things else as thine". He wears a fool's cap with bells, ornamented with three ostrich feathers and 'Ich dien'. Beside him is a barrel inscribed 'Butt' and 'P. of W'. Fox as the drunken butler, directed to the left, holds out his right fore-finger to the Prince, saying: "Taffy - when the island's ours - my brave Boy - I - I'll be King - and you shall be Viceroy"; in his left hand he holds a dice-box inscribed 'Compass'. On the ground at Fox's feet, facing the Prince, kneels Caliban, a hairy body with the head of North; he says: "My Jove, I'll lick your shoes & obey your nod, and his, for sure he's Bacchus, the bloated God." Over the sea and above the wreck is a bright crescent encircling a dark disk, shedding its rays on clouds.--Adapted from George.
