The scene which is here represented of the deputation of Nobles saluting Lady Jane as their Sovereign, is laid in the library of Durham House, where Lady Jane resided with her husband, Lord Guildford Dudley. Of the kneeling figures, the nearest is the Duke of Northumberland, who bears in his hands the fatal parchment. Beyond Northumberland, is the Duke of Suffolk, Father of Lady Jane. The Lord Chancellor, Bishop of Ely, kneels a little apart from Suffolk. Immediately beyond is the first Earl of Bedford, and the figure of Cranmer is partially seen over the shoulder of Suffolk. At a short distance beyond this kneeling group is another, consisting of the Duchess of Suffolk and Lord and Lady Guildford Dudley. Her Grace is seated at the library table, and evidently joins the general entreaty. The youthful pair are dressed in the rich habits which distinguished that period, and the young Nobleman seems to have brought persuasion, as it were, to a focus, by his gentle remonstrance. [P. 8.]
