Hyde Park.The above gentleman takes this method of advertising for a wife. He has hitherto led a single life, which, upon reflection, he cannot help considering an act of ingratitude toward the sex in general, with whom, he has every reason to believe he is no small favorite...His dress is a military blue surtout, closely and tastefully braided; a hat, with a broad black band immediately above the brim; and white trousers, with straps to correspond. He always carries and umbrella, though he disclaims all connexion whatever with Paul Pry.
Very rare etching and letterpress. Watermarked paper: J Whatman. Sheet 483 x 330mm. 19 x 13".
An advertisement due to be published, related to the portrait of the man above, in the classified section of 'The Times'; searching for woman worthy of his love.
