Notes
Content: Printed on border: "From Hogarth's 'Progress of cruelty.' " "Hogarth blundered when he introduced the brewer's drayman as a type of the 'progress of cruelty.' The man is asleep : he would not willingly hurt a fly, to say nothing of a child, but, 'much bemused with beer,' he knows not the mischief his wheels are doing. He can scarcely even be accused of carelessness, for how could he expect a child to be there unguarded? It is the nurse or mother that is to blame. Nobody who has to do with beer is inhumane." Includes additional text.
