A comic sketch. A man surrounded by three women sits down to drink some tea, although unknown to him, the lady to the right is filling his cup up with whisky before she puts the tea in. The youngest lady, seated opposite holding the teapot is so absorbed by the whole ordeal that she pours onto the tray rather than into the cups.
