Description

Caricature with text proposing a new cure for various 'black ailments', such as 'drunkennes', 'dirt', 'feeving', and 'seberal oder berry prebelent complaints'. This tract, one of 'Follitt's Black Lectures', ridicules the speech of black people, and plays on existing prejudices against them, such as the notion that black people steal, are prone to drunkennes, don't wash, are stupid, etc. Published by John Follitt of 22 St Martin's Court, St Martin's Lane, London.
