A Knowing One
Oval vignette of a man, half-length, body turned to the left, looks to the right from the corners of his eyes. He holds a riding switch under his left arm. In the accompanying text to this cartoon, the typical "knowing one" is described as entirely "illiterate in virtue as well as books, ... an adept in vice and the world".
