Notes
Content : Printed on border: "All ye who would a moral learn, your eyes upon this emblem turn : two dogs in combat fierce you see, for dogs, like men, will disagree. The cause of quarrel was a bone, with dogs a very frequent one; but while the two in deadly fight, half blind with rage, bark, tear and bite…" "When fortune smiles, take the advantage." "When the iron's hot it's time to strike." "Take hold of a good minute." "When two fools meet, the bargain goes off."
