About this work

Description

Wellington says: "Ha! my old friend! This kindness was unexpected why, they told me that you that you were quite turned against me." John Bull replies: "What! I turned against you? why see, we have had some differences of late, and I am an obstinate old fellow, altho' not so unreasonable as some people would make me out. - but when I turn against you and forget what you have done for me & mine may I be - that's all! - but come, cheer up, they say you live too low, and think too much about these D--d politics."
