Description
Print shows Princess Charlotte climbing from a rowboat up the side of a naval ship. Her dress flies in the wind as a naval captain below anchors her petticoats. A chair is being lowered from the ship by ropes. Charlotte says, "I shall go the way our brave sailors do!! so take care of my petticoates, Captain! and chair the Bishop!!!" On the right side of the boat sit the bishop and a lady, looking up at the Princess in horror. On the left side of the boat sit two boys with oars, one of whom says, "She is a furst Rate by God, Tom / I hope she'll be well man'd!"
