A Day's Fishing at Sebastopol
"Hi! Jim, bring the landing net--blow'd if I hain't hooked another seventy-four."
(The full-page cartoon refers to the Russians' scuttling of their own fleet at the port of Sebastopol during the Crimean War, a "seventy-four" being a 74-gun man o' war.)
Punch, October 6, 1855 (Vol. 29), page 137.
