The lower margin reads: "The FRUIT WOMAN./ While Arm in Arm the Macaroni Beaux,/ Admire the Charms Trim Miliners disclose./ On them behind old Kate her Barrow wheels,/ And of S.r Delicate Trips up the Heels./ As on his Back among her Fruit he falls./ Who'll buy a Beau? my Top of Fruit she squalls./ London, Publish'd as the Act directs 1 Decem.r 1780. by R. Wilkinson, at N.o 58 in Cornhill."
