About this work

Description

Eldon says: "I protest that with the exception of a slight tinge of Grey, it is nothing more than poor C-stle-gh's black draught.", Wellington adds: "Oh these people will take the bread out of our mouths". Stanley who is restraining O'Connell says: "His agitation is quite alarming:- I can scarcely keep him down." The doctor (Earl Grey) says: "These inflamatory symptoms must be abated by a little counter irritation.", the nurse (Althorp) adds: "See there! such a nice bit of sugar!"
