Charles Fox, shown in profile, with a fox's head, rides his horse towards the left holding a goose by the neck over his shoulder. Two bags stuffed with geese are suspended from his saddle. He says, "I have Burgoyn'd the geese at last by coming North about" [i.e., surrendered them to the enemy as Gen. Burgoyne did at Saratoga, by forming a coalition with Lord North].
