- Sorrow's dry or a cure for the heart ache
Four line poem by Dryden at bottom. "Were I not resolv'd against the yoke of hapless marriage, never to be curst with second love, so fatal was the first, to this one error I might yield again." There is also an open book in the plate displaying these lines: "A smoky house and a scolding wife are the plagues of man's life. Oh what pleasure will abound when my wife is laid in ground!"
