Horrible Incident in Real Life John Leech Cartoons from Punch magazine

Horrible Incident in Real Life. As the servants are gone to bed, the master of the house endeavours to get a little bit of supper for himself. He can't conceive where the deuce the things are all kept; and he is almost torn to pieces by the black natives of the kitchen. [It may be urged that the natives, as represented in the tableau, are small in proportion to the other objects; but, as they are not agreeable creatures, it was thought advisable to keep them down in size.]
