    Shows John Russell (1st Earl Russell) as a little boy eating pie at a dinner table. Around him stand King Leopold I of Belgium and Britannia, who tells Russell that the 'Brazil-Nuts' have disagreed with him and that 'Doctor Belgium says you did wrong, and that a little humble pie will do you good'. This refers to Russell's involvement in a dispute between the British and Brazilian governments over the arrest of some British officers in Rio de Janerio, a dispute resolved in favour of the Brazilians by Leopold.
