"A fat cook sleeps by the kitchen fire in an arm-chair with her feet high up on the chimney-piece. She holds a glass filled from a bottle of 'Cherry Bounce' at her elbow. Close beside her a comely plump kitchen-maid is also asleep, with her arm round the neck of a negro footman who sleeps on her shoulder. All have beatific smiles. Before the fire a cat sleeps on the back of a dog. Cooking utensils stand on the chimney-piece and hang from the wall; dishes on a dresser complete a crowded interior."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
