A general discharge

Item Information

Title:
A general discharge : Or the darling angel's finishing stroke
Description:
Mrs. Clarke has been making pretty havoc among the branches of the service. She has drummed out a number of officers to the tune of the Rogue's March ; discomfited generals and prelates, who, since their intrigues are unmasked, are doing their best to get out of range. As to the 'Darling Angel's redoubtable opponent, the Commander-in Chief, he has laid down his cocked-hat and sword, and, on his knees, is trying to mitigate the excess of mischief which his discarded lady-love is in a position to wreak.
