Summary:
Vinegar valentine, with image of a man writing at a tall desk. Poem below image: "You poor pen driver, with your inky fingers, / Constant drudgery still o'er you lingers, / The plan of your future I plainly can see, / A slave to your books and bottle you'll be; / Unless, indeed your employer discovers, / The demon, embezzlement, over you hovers."
