About this work
[London] (172, Aldersgate St. E.C.) : R. Canton.
1 print : lithograph, with watercolour ; image 15.8 x 12.4 cm
Oh who would be a lady's maid,/ and toil from morn till night,/ by artificial means to make,/ a beauty from a fright/ ...
Lettering continues: my mistress is so trying,/ her clothes are grand and fine,/ my only consolation is, I know they'll soon be mine.
