Print after Issac Cruikshank [which was after a work by George Moutard Woodward], published by Thomas Tegg, 111 Cheapside, London on 25 February, 1807; the scene refers to the 1801 Act of Union with the husband and wife representing England and Ireland respectively. The wife [Ireland] addresses her husband [England] seated opposite her at a table: "You unfeeling monster ... do you remember the forture you had with me? Now you sit continually smoking your pipe totally insensible to my charms. I firmly believe if I were to die you'd marry the Devil's youngest daughter - if you could get any money by it ! Her husband replies: My dear make yourself easy on that head, you know it is unlawful for a man to marry two sisters!".
