"The Duke of York (right) dances a jig or hornpipe with a housemaid wearing a mob-cap and apron, who holds up a broom. The mistress of the house sits on a settee against the wall, watch-them with gestures of rage and indignation. Two men, blowing wind-instruments, watch from a musicians' gallery (left), on which is inscribed 'Horns! Horns! Horns!' Under the gallery persons are indicated turning their backs on the dancers. After the title is etched: 'Hic est, cujus amans hospita capta dolo est.' Beneath are the verses:'See See the fair one by her Guest betray 'd, By York deserted - rivall'd by her Maid T-r-n-l, lovely Bride, no longer mourn His love, since Spider Brushers serve his Turn, The Cook maid next will strike this loving Man With Kissing Crusts, & Meat sops in the Pan.'"--British Museum online catalogue.
