fix plates in 1745, and which fully fuftained the reputation built upon the 
" Harlot's Progrefs " and the " Rake's Progrefs." Perhaps the beit plate 
of the " Marriage d la mode," is the fourth-the rnufic fcene-in which 
one principal group of figures efpecially arreils the attention. It is repre-

the fentimental, infipid, patient delight of the man with his hair in 
papers, and tipping his tea; the pert, fmirking, conceited, half-diltorted 
approbation of the figure next to him; the traufition to the total infenii- 
bility of the round face in profile, and then to the wonder of the negro 
boy at the rapture of his miitrefs, form a perfeet whole."
