depicted wearing black suit and white waistcoat, set in the original gilt-mounted rectangular papier-mâché frame, along side a locket with locks of hair tied with gold wire and seed pearls and the word Souvenir in gold on opalescent glass.

An extract from the Salisbury and Wiltshire journal 22 March 1819 which is pasted to the reverse of the frame states that William's "well known eloquence and energy as a preacher, proved his conviction of the truth and importance of the doctrines that he delivered."
William, the son of Dr. Douglas, Bishop of Salisbury, was chancellor of the diocese of Westminster and a canon residentiary of that cathedral and vicar of Gillingham.
