"N.A. (see no. 142.) Two water-birds have come across a large delegation of frogs, and the latter, made bold by superior numbers, are jeering their enemies in language which furnishes Mr. Beard a quaint verse for the tablet of his painting: 'How many can you hold.' 'Plenty of game today.' 'why don't you make so bold as to stow us chaps away.' 'Who's going to swallow me.' 'One at a time, you know.' 'Dainty you seem to be; Frog's legs are all the go.'" [P. 49; see serial 03850142 for commentary on artist.]
