"A countryman (right) in a smock and his wife (left) sit by a table on which is a frothing jug and two full tumblers. She reads the newspaper, and looks up to say: "Why this Bonny-part be making Kings every-day - I should not wonder if thee wast in France, if he made a King of thee John - what wouldst thee do if thee wast a King?" He answers: "Do -! Why I'd swing on a gate and eat fat Bacon all the day long." He is a broad shock-headed fellow, seated with legs astride, a hand on each knee, a smoking pipe in his right. hand. A blazing fire burns in the grate."--British Museum online catalogue.
