The Hasty Marriage, 1772

Snapshot 2013-10-17 16-54-08

An ill-begotten child and an impudent wife. Poor old Dick.


– From The Covent Garden Magazine, 1772



Scarce had five months expir’d, since Dick did wed,
When lo! his fruitful wife was brought to bed;
How now, cry’d Dick – this is too soon, my Kate;
No, Dick, said she, you married me too late.”
