Deceiving, Receiving

Coloured cartoon from the Northern looking Glass 23 January 1826, depicting the two remaining kisses from the series of six (for the other four, search under the key word "kisses"). These pictures are entitled Deceiving and Recieving, and show a handsome and fashionably-dressed young suitor kissing a large and much older woman who holds an ear trumpet to her deaf ear, but who is clearly very rich indeed, and what appears to be a mother receiving a kiss from her dutiful son.
