AS THE SERVANTS ARE GONE TO BED, THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE ENDEAVOURS TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF SUPPER FOR HIMSELF. HE CAN'T CONCEIVE WHERE THE DEUCE THE THINGS ARE ALL KEPT; AND HE IS ALMOST TORN TO PIECES BY THE BLACK NATIVES OF THE KITCHEN. [It may be urged that the Natives, as represented in the tableau, are small in proportion to the other objects; but, as they are not agreeable creatures, it was thought advisable to keep them down in size]

Punch, Jul.-Dec. 1852
