    A sequel to PU1/50/1*12, this illustration shows Uncle Fussy in a dining room. Standing before several members of his family, he engulfs himself in smoke, a result of his attempt to demonstrate 'how gunpowder can be contained in two incombustible powders', themselves parts of 'a few simple chemical experiments'.
