    Shows Mr Punch and a 'Landlord'—representing the Prime Minister, Henry J Temple (3rd Viscount Palmerston)—standing in an squalid and overcrowded room of a cottage, a scene that compares unfavourably with the stable depicted in PU1/40/2/5. Mr Punch praises the landlord's healthy 'Stable Arrangements' but suggests that he tries 'something of the sort here!'.
