Lettering

A midnight modern conversation. Wm. Hogarth invt. pinxt & sculpt. 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.
