- Object: All Sorts. From the lucious Tid bit to the bouncing Jack Whore - From the Bunter in Rags to the gay Pompadour
Satire on prostitution: a group of four women of different types in a park: one seated on a bench with her finger to her cheek looks coyly upwards; a plump woman in the foreground walks to left, looking to front; a young woman, poorly dressed, hands on hips, confronts a taller, fashionably dressed woman who llooks down at her with a sneer; a proof before all letters.

Francis Grose (Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, 1785) defines a "Jack whore" as "a large masculine overgrown wench".
Samuel Johnson defined a "bunter" as "A cant word for a woman who picks up rags about the street; and used, by way of contempt, for any low vulgar woman".
