Inscriptions In plate, center bottom margin: BACHELOR'S HALL. / PLATE 1.; lower left: To Bachelor's Hall we good fellows invite, / To partake of the chase that makes up our delight, / We have spirits like fire, and of health such a stock, / That our pulse strikes the seconds as true as a Clock. lower right: Did you see us you'd swear, as we mount with a grace, / That Diana had dubb'd some new gods of the chase, / Hark away, hark away, / All nature looks gay, / And Aurora with smiles ushers in the bright day.
