- Object: Courtship. Plate. VI.
See No. 15983. A sequence of vignettes.  'Love at First Sight. An Interesting Situation'. Pickle looks over a bank to see a fashionably dressed woman on her back in shallow water, while her horse gallops off with the empty gig.
 'Pleasant Dreams'. Pickle sleeps with a book, Ovid ['Art of Love'] on his pillow. Above his head among clouds are a face (his own), galloping horse, and lady in distress.
 'Morning Visit. Kind Enquiries'. Pickle is shown into a neat parlour by a maid and is coquettishly received by the lady.
 'The Declaration Say you'll be Mrs P—'. A charming tea-garden scene. Pickle and the coyly-consenting lady at a table under trees. A waiter brings a tray of tea-things. Behind, a family party is promenading before a background of recessed alcoves with tables. A grinning sun looks down.
 'Manœuvering'. A tea-table scene in a well-furnished room. Pickle on the sofa beside his hostess. A portrait of the first husband watches them grimly. The lady: 'I hate an avaricious disposition—you my Dear Pickle have never spoke to me of Fortune'. Pickle: 'Ah its very well for those that are well off to think nothing of Money Eh my Dear?'
 'Honorable Love'. A cupid in parson's gown and bands holds a hoop (a wedding-ring), saying, 'Wilt thou have &c'. Beside him are his bow (unstrung) and quiver; a crescent moon of honey-comb, 'Honey Moon', sets among clouds.
 'A Day After the Wedding'. Pickle, in speechless anguish, turns from his wife (the supposedly rich widow) who pushes forward the eldest of five unattractive children: 'I have no fortune, Love but a fine Family by my last dear Man.— I was a Milliner, but as I found it very laborious, I thought it best to get Married again.' There are also two small vignettes without title, incidents of courtship: Pickle helps the lady into a Thames wherry, and hands her out of a gig. 1 July 1829
