A young lady appears to have copied one of the many popular morality prints of the time on the theme of degrees of progress of sin and piety. A note to the user at bottom advises 'The Reader must peruse this from the middle upwards or downwards until he perceive the degree at which he now stands, and let him be careful of the first advances of sin...' 'Family Worship only on Sunday Evenings' to 'Disease and Death' is but a few degrees of descent from Indifference.
