|NOTES from DR SYNTAX'S TOUR, 1812|
Plate 15 opposite p.102:-
DOCTOR SYNTAX MADE FREE OF THE CELLAR.
"But 'tis the custom of this place,
"From country yeomen to his Grace,
"Whene'er a stranger-guest we see,
"To make him of the cellar free.
The Butler cried, "You'll understand
"It is our noble Lord's command
"To give this rev'rend Doctor here
"A sample of the strongest beer;-
"So tap her Grace of Devonshire."
