Jack, hove down - With a Grog Blossom Fever (caricature)

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.
