Quotation from Milton's Paradise Lost, below title: On she came-such ad I saw her in my dream, grace was in all her steps-Heaven in her eye in every gesture-dignity and love.

Abstract:
A parody on Book 8, lines 487-9 of John Milton's Paradise lost. A lean, spectacled man stands by a bed as he welcomes a drunken trollope who staggers into the room holding a glass and a bottle labelled Geneva (gin). He exclaims, parodying Milton, "On she came-such ad I saw her in my dream, Geneva was in all her steps --Geneva in her hand and every gesture-reeling ripe for fun!" Outside on the landing, a pretty young woman looks on with amusement.
