Abstract:
"Three men sit at a round table over punchbowl, lemons, glasses, decanter, and jar of 'Tobacco'. Above the design is the title of the glee: 'How shall we Mortals spend our Hours'. A handsome young man (left), wearing top-boots, sings with an ecstatic expression: 'In Love!' An old naval officer, wearing a cocked hat, with a wooden leg and a patch over one eye smokes a long pipe, and sings: 'In War'. The third, a gaping dishevelled sot (right), sings 'In Drinking'."--British museum online catalogue.
