Punch, 21 (1851), 153.
Song for Harvest-Home
Agriculture, Machinery, Steam-power, Animal Husbandry, Progress
Subtitled 'Adapted to the Improved System of Agriculture', reflects on the fact that his master employs only 'two men and a boy; / The rest is Machines [...] and the chief of his servants is osses and steam'. Anticipates that 'gentlefolks' dining at the 'fat cattle show' will now drink to 'the Machine'.
