Lettering

A midnight modern conversation designed by Wm. Hogarth engraved by T. Cook. Think not to find one meant resemblance there We lash the vices but the persons spare. Prints should be prizd as authors should be read Who sharply smile prevailing folly dead. So Rabilaes laught, & so Cervantes thought, So Nature dictated what art has taught
