Captain Gell Inquires about Chocolate

I found this wonderful costume reference at the Metropolitan Museum of Art online, mixed in with a thousand plates and tankards and salt cellars. He really should be an internet meme, his pose is so perfect. Laura sent me the chocolate I want some. :D

In case you want to google the original, he is Captain John Gell, the painting is by Gilbert Stuart, c 1785. Metropolitan Museum of Art.
