"An elderly 'cit' sleeps in a low, upright chair, leaning back till his profile faces the ceiling. His hands are clasped over his chest, his wig dangles from his coat-collar, and he puffs from tightly shut lips. The room is bare with a boarded floor. On a round table are a jug and glass, and the sleeper's pipe lying on 'Cobbett's Political Register'."--British Museum online catalogue.
Campanion print to: "Wide-awake."
