Cecil Aldin

A town crier of olden times.

“From noise of scare-fires rest ye free,
From murders, benedicitie
From all mischances that may fright,
your pleasing slumbers/ in the night:
Mercie secure ye all and keep the goblin from ye while ye sleep
Past one aclock and almost two, My masters, all good-day to you.”

Watercolor, 15 x 9" signed and dated lower right.
