Scene from Goldsmith's "Vicar of Wakefield." Moses, "with a deal box before him," is arrayed by his two beautiful sisters, who are trying to make him smart. In the back-ground is the worthy Vicar, with "the youngest boy, Bill," on his knee, hearing him read; whilst "Dick," standing on tiptoe, is evidently making an unpromising copy, Deborah is seen removing the substantials. [P. 3.]
