Inscribed in graphite, lower left: "Watch narrowly all the touches and you may calculate upon your best plate, so now for comments, too much Etching on the left Bank and particularly the Lock, scratched [...] under sitting figure] it will cause the mezzotint | to wear. Hold your hand in future, for you compel me to put shadows to support what I could wish away.
