- "A village doctor's house indicated by the sign of a pestle and mortar over the door, and by the placard, "Probe Surgeo[n and] Man Midwife". From a casement window above the door the doctor in night-cap and shirt leans out, shaking his fist at a man who has knocked him up and is standing below, gaping with astonishment at the doctor's anger. The doctor holds his breeches in his right hand. A wall (left) with trees and a building behind it and low railings in front, complete the design."--British Museum online catalogue.
