7298 THE MORNING AFTER MARRIAGE -- OR -- A SCENE ON THE CONTINENT.
Plenipo Georgy fecit. [Gillray.]
Pubd April 5th 1788. by W. Holland No 50 Oxford Strt

A sequel to No. 6932 which was reissued 27 March 1788. The final figure of the date appears to have been altered from 6 to 8. The Prince and Mrs. Fitzherbert in the bedroom of a French inn; a maidservant enters (l.) with a tea-tray. The Prince, yawning and stretching with a dissipated air, is seated on the edge of a table; the revelry of the past night is indicated by an overturned decanter, broken wineglass, and a broken candle. Another candlestick and broken wine-glass lie on the ground, together with the Prince's top-boots. He wears slippers and his stockings are ungartered, the honi soit qui mal y [pense] ribbon hanging round his leg. Mrs. Fitzherbert, seated on the bed, draws on a stocking; her garter inscribed Fox lies on the ground ... The bed is heavily draped with fringed curtains. The Prince's feathered hat hangs on the wall.
