Punch’s physiology of courtship. — N° 4

This is a case in which Mr. Punch refrains from offering his advice.
Angelina is the daughter of a country curate, and has fourteen brothers and sisters. Edwin is a landscape painter—A most charming profession.He, it is true, is an only son, but this is of small advantage to him, for he is also an orphan, his parents having died insolvent a long time ago. He has just taken up art as a profession, and by doing so has quarreled with the only solvent relative he possesses.

He is now persuading Angelina to share with him the honours and  profits of his glorious career, proposing they should marry on the proceeds of  his first picture, now in progress (and which we have faithfully represented above).

The reason why Mr. Punch withholds his advice, is, that he does not believe it would be followed.
