Haber-Dasher &c, where a pretty woman is seen displaying her wares. He says: I say—there's a—fine Girl! Let's go in & ask if Mr Thomson lives there? & have a Chat with her. The Irishman turns to the Scot, saying jovially, Och—by my Soul but we'll buy Something of the dare Cratur—Oh the Swate little Jewel!
