John Leech Cartoons from Punch magazine
Pleasures of Housekeeping. The Cook says that she thinks there's a slate loose on the roof of the House, for the water comes into the Servants' bed-room. Mr. Briggs replies that the sooner it is put to rights the better before it goes any further - and he will see about it. Mr Briggs having been told by the Builder that a "little compo" is all that is wanted, the first step is taken towards making things comfortable.
