Shows a young 'son and heir', just home from school, 'surrounded by his adoring womankind'—his mother, sisters, and nurse. They all hold objects indicating that they are preparing for the summer holidays: the mother, for instance, holds a butterfly net, and one older sister holds a toy yacht. The boy, whose enjoyment of his holidays appears to have been spoiled by a toothache, exclaims that it 'just wouldn't the holidays be jolly, if it wasn't for the dentist'.
