The companion picture to the preceding. It represents the interior of an apartment with figures smoking and drinking, while a female is grating sugar to mix with a cordial; in the front of the table near her is a child, and in the foreground on the left is a dog. The picture is painted with infinite skill, and in the style of that inimitable master Peter De Hooge. This pair of pictures are from the collection of Charles Harrington, Esq. of England.
