A three-quarter-length portrait to right, wearing a blue velvet coat lined with red silk, blue breeches and a red waistcoat laced with gold. His dress wig is white and he reclines against a gun barrel gesturing to the right with his left hand. He lost his right hand when a midshipman in an engagement with a French ship in 1697. The artist has indicated the loss of his hand by the positioning of the stump of his forearm in a pocket.
