25 x 30. This picture represents a coquettish girl, apparently engaged peeling apples. She is teased by some person, whom the picture does not show, who is trying to kiss her. She quietly seizes a spoon from the bowl of molasses on the table beside her, and is poising it to give the "provoking fellow" a daub. She looks around with arch expression and laughing eyes, and says, "Kiss me if you dare, but look out for 'lasses.'" [P. 63.]
