Description

The letter E is illustrated with a man who wears a saucepan as a hat and smells a flower while his hat burns in the fireplace, a book is in the frying pan, and the clock hangs upside down on the wall. The full verse reads:

We often see things seeming strange;
But scarce so strange as this:
Here everything is mis-applied,
Here every change amiss.
