    Matrimonial infelicities, Mr State & his wife Church
Published by Thomas McLean .Print made by Robert Seymour (?) .
George IV, “Mr State”, in royal robes, strides contemptuously from “Church”, a fat and bloated bishop (left), larger in scale than himself, who sits holding a hankerchief to one eye. The latter wears lawn sleeves and mitre, and a frilled cap under his (or her) wig, and says: ‘Very well Sir! Leave me & the Children do Sir & go after your Hussy’s, there’s Mis Liberal as they call her, & the Harlot in red—Oh You Brute!!’ At his knees stand two tiny but fat parsons, expectant toddlers in wig and gown; one cries: ‘Mother! I’m so hungry give me another fat living.’ Wellington’s profile and lefy arm project from the right margin; he says to the King: ‘Never mind Her’. The King wears a crown and the collar of the Garter with ermine-trimmed robe, and holds the sceptre against his left shoulder; his right hand, holding the orb, is on his hip. June 1829
