"A lean shambling spectacled man, resembling a slipshod tailor, stands by a bed (right) rapturously welcoming a hideous drunken trollope who staggers into the room, holding a glass and a bottle of 'Geneva' (gin). Outside the door is a pretty young woman, interested and amused. He exclaims: "On she came-- such as I saw her in my dream-- Grease was in all her steps-- Geneva in her hand, and every Gesture, reeling ripe for fun!!" Below the title the lines from 'Paradise Lost' (Book viii, 11.487-9) are correctly quoted."--British Museum online catalogue
