7 3/4"w x 5"h

               
   
 

From "The EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES in the Book of Heads entitled
HUMAN PASSIONS DELINEATED": PLATE 35

   
 

ADJUTANT.

   

T

HE Prince commands that you bring up the horse.

GENERAL.

Ah Lord, what mean you by this strange discourse !

ADJUTANT.

The horse must aid the foot, and them preserve ;

GENERAL.

But I think best the horse lie in reserve :
For should a ball but graze this skin of mine,
As l'm all heart, I must my soul resign.
