Lettering

Paulo Purganti and his wife: an honest, but a simple pair. ...

Lettering note

Lettering continues: "She often set the doctor's bands, and strok'd his beard, and squeez'd his hand: kindly complain'd, that after noon he went to pore on books too soon: she held it wholesomer by much, to rest a little on the couch: Vide Prior's poems."
