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."
