Artaud pinxt. | When he, whom even our joys provoke, | The fiend of Nature, join'd his yoke, | And rush'd in wrath to make our isle his prey; | Thy form, from out thy sweet abode, | O'ertook him on his blasted road | And stopt his wheels, and took'd his rage away | I see recoil his sable Steeds,"; lettered, lower right: "F. Bartolozzi R.A. Sculp. | That bore him swift to savage deeds; | Thy tender melting eyes they own, | O Maid, for all thy love to Britain shown, | Where justice has her iron tower | To thee we build a roseate bower, | Thou, thou shalt rule our queen, & share our monarch's throne. | Vide Collin's Ode to Mercy"; lettered, lower center: "THE | Triumph of Mercy | London, Publish'd Feb 16 1794 by thos Macklin Poets Gally, Fleet Street."
