Lettering

Mr. Lambkin, at an evening party, being full of life and spirits (or, rather wine,) gives great offence to the lady of his affections, by his philanderings, and completely ruins his fortunes by dancing the polka with such violence as to upset poor old John, the coffee, and indeed, the whole party.
