About this work
Glaisyer is in the yard of an apothecary's shop, indicating his profession. He says to the dog: "Come here poor dog! Thee shalt not say I called thee names, or beat thee, for that would be cruel!! but I will annoint thee with oil, and moisten thy sides with my pure linnement." A woman in a distant window calls out: "Ah Obadiah, that dreadfull whining cant, to allure the poor animal, in order to inflict the most diabolical unheard of cruelty on him, shall not go unpunished."
[London] (50 Piccadilly) : S.W. Fores, September 1806.

The last stage of cruelty, or a mercifull example of Quaerism at Brighton. Dedicated to the Society of Quakers - N.B. the side of the poor animal was entirely burned through the next day and his bowels actuall fell out on the ground.
