Description

This is a rather fine engraving of a sentimental poem entitled "The Soldier's Daughter" by Thomas George Ingall. A soldier returns from the wars and bumps into his orphaned daughter in the street. Ingall was best known for his poem "The poor little child of a Tar", where a sailor returns home to find his son begging in the street. Obviously, Ingall decided to cash in on this heart warming scenario and try variations on a theme! A note verso states that this print was owned by a Captain G Babington. The engraving is interesting in that it depicts a soldier's uniform from the Napoleonic Wars period. Dated 1803, the print was published by Laurie and Whittle in London, who were well known for such ballads etc.
