Inserted in the frontispiece of Ode on an Evening View of the Crescent at Bath by Christopher Anstey 1773. Gay is shown in gown and wig directing the work of a kitchen garden; a clerk is seated at a table bearing a money-bag and is entering accounts on a sheet. A gardener stands leaning on a spade, holding his wages. Latin translation is 'As riches grow, care follows' - Horace.
