Hand coloured etching. Published by Hannah Humphrey on 4 December 1803.

James Gilray’s take on Charles Stanhope, 3rd Earl of Harrington (1752-1829), a veteran of the American Revolutionary War and Colonel of the 1st Life Guards from 1792. Harrington was the father of the irreconcible dandy Beau, Viscount Petersham, firm friend of the Prince Regent. Hannah Humphrey was one of a handful of successful women print sellers operating in regency London.  Between 1797 and 1817 she ran her business from premises at in 27 St James's Street, the shop being depicted in the print Very Slippy-Weather. James Gillray lodged with her for much of his working life, and she looked after him after his lapse into insanity around 1810 until his death in 1815. She was known as Mrs Humphrey although she remained a spinster for all her life.
