For Sale is a Front Page from "The Graphic," December 15th 1883, showing an Engraving called "Bearer Waits."
The Incident depicted in this drawing appears to be to the following effect. The Archdeacon, the Curate, and the two girls have been playing a game of Lawn Tennis. In an interval of the serious business of this pastime,the two Clerical gentlemen have been relaxing their minds and muscles by a bout of See-Sawing. Suddenly a telegraph boy appears on the scene, whereupon the Archdeacon in his eagerness, instead of releasing his companion, plumps down on the ground to read his telegram, sending his "undignified" companion high into the air.
