Worrall indulges in the comic, giving two groups of outline figures, the one representing a squad of soldiers dancing around a hoop-skirt and a bonnet elevated on a pole, to the tune of "The Girl I Left Behind me." The other is a group of young ladies in a parlor, fixing their melancholy gaze upon a masculine coat and hat, which is elevated in their midst; this is labeled "All gone to the war," and is quite suggestive.
