Abstract:
"Two pilgrims meet, one (l.) debonair and jaunty, the other in a crouching position, and with an anguished expression. Both wear hats turned up with cockle shells, and necklaces hung with shells, long belted gowns with rosaries. Each holds a staff surmounted by a cross. The verses, by 'Peter Pindar' (Wolcot) (abridged), relate the pilgrimage of 'a brace of Sinners' to the shrine at 'Loretta', fifty miles, with peas in their shoes, by order of their priest. The returning pilgrim explains his rapid progress:'"To walk a little more at ease,"I took the liberty to boil my peas.'"--British Museum online catalogue.
