Coloured cartoon from the Glasgow Looking Glass 9 July 1825 from the series "Domestic Intelligence". It shows a blacksmith fighting with his wife in a smithy, while their daughter, unnoticed, drowns in a large tub of water. The caption that accompanies the cartoon reads:
Connubial joy all other care disowns,
The Parents happy, whilst the daughter drowns.
