Embedded text or transcriptDon't press him against his inclination - he don't know what is good for him. -
Allow me strongly to recommend you to take three of these pills immediately. - I tell you flatly
I'll have none of your pills, I can't swallow them at present.- It is mighty uncivil of these
fellows to press the gentleman so, when they see he is going to have my black draught. -
Abolition of tithes [attached to pill box, centre]. - Universal suffrage, vote by ballot, annual
parliament [attached to the 'black draught' bottle]. - Repeal pills [on box under the table,
bottom right]
