Object ID PAF4157
Description Hand-coloured.; Plate 78. This cartoon makes much play on the drinking habits of sailors. 'Jack' is shown ill in his hammock surrounded by bottles of 'Grog'. The doctor seems ready to make much of Jack's condition with a range of remedies and cures, but stopping the 'Grog' might seem the best advice.
Date made 12 Aug 1811
