His most admired domestics are Soprano, Siciliano, Andantino, and all the Anos and Inos that constitute the musical science. He can scrape, scratch, shake, diminish, increase, flourish, &c.; and he is so delighted with the sound of his own Viol, that an ass would sooner lend his ears to anything than to him; and as a dog shakes a pig, so does he shake a note by the ear, and never lets it go till he makes it squeak.

... who dines for 6d. and clothes himself during the year for 5 pounds is probably as healthily fed, and as healthily clad, as if his dinner cost two guineas a day, and his dress 200 pounds a year.
