Comfort of a Bed of Roses. Charles Fox, in bed with his wife, having a nightmare. To the right, Napoleon jumps to the bed from a cannon with the words "Pour subjugeur le Monde" inscribed on the muzzle; behind him are seen pikes and a banner with the words "Horrors of Invasion." William Pitt, as a shade, floats near the bed, admonishing Fox to awake. An eagle with the collar labeled "Prussia" looms over Fox's head. From under the bed grow thorny rose branches and Death crawls out from under the covers. A bulldog with its collar inscribed "John Bull" lunges at Napoleon. Date 1806 April 21st.
