Lettered, lower left: "Hamilton pinxt. | In frozen letters January lies, | While snow and hail upon him ruthless beat | With rugged force, regardless of his cries, | Or vain request to feel wan Phoebus' heat: | Now on the Ice-bound surface of the lake, | By polish'd steel upborne, the jocund croud."; lettered, lower right: "W.N. Gavdiner sculpt. | Display their skill, and mazy windings make; | Some, skill-less, fall, the others laugh aloud: | While from the bank each jair, with fond surprize, | Beholds her favourite Youth, like arrow fleet | And darts such influence from her bright eyes, | As more than Compensates for Sol's retreat."; lettered, lower center: "JANUARY | London Publish'd April 1, 1788 by T. Mackin No.39 Fleet Street."
