"A gouty 'cit' (right), using an ear-trumpet, sits in an arm-chair facing a delinquent in Highland dress, who bows low. One swathed leg rests on a stool, on the other foot is a slashed shoe. At his right hand is a table with writing-materials; on the other side of this sits a bedizened wife, holding a fan against her hideous profile. Behind the Scot stands a fat constable holding a long staff. The Scot: "I own your Worship-- I was a little inebriated but your Worship knaws "Nemo Mortatium [sic]-- Omnibus / "Hooris Saupit [horis sapit]!!" The Justice: "What's that you say fellow about Whores in a Saw Pit--a very improper place to go with such company--I wonder you are not ashamed to mention such a thing and before my Wife too!!--but however as it is your first offence I will discharge you this time--but never come here with such a story again!!"."--British Museum online catalogue
