Heading to a song printed below the (printed) title: 'Sung with great Applause by Mr. Incledon, in his New Entertainment, called "The Minstrel" [Tune—Town and Country]'. Four well-dressed and smiling men sit round a table on which are decanters and fruit. One sings, grinning broadly, his hand on a decanter; his tie-pin is in the form of a bottle. The man at the head of the table, in profile to the left, is Whittle. The chimney-piece (right) is a clock surmounted by a Bacchus and wreathed with grapes. A candle has burned to the socket. Outside the window (left) is a church resembling St. Paul's, Covent Garden. The third of five verses:
At Candy's in Church Street, I'll sing of a set
Of six Irish blades, who together had met;
Four bottles apiece made us call for the score,
And nothing detain'd us but one bottle more.
Plate numbered 531.
