The candle-maker has here perpetrated a vile pun on his name ; certes he would have invoked the wrath of the great lexicographer, who boldly averred that " the man that would make a pun would pick a pocket."

#825 THO. WASHBURNE AT Three crowns, in the field.
Rev. IN THE MINORIES Grocers Company arms.
The three crowns imply the diadems of the three kingdoms, England, Scotland, and Ireland. Queen Caroline, wife of King George the Second, in most respects endeared to the people of England,, having conceived the idea of excluding the public from St. James's park, and converting it into a noble garden for the palace,
consulted Sir Robert Walpole as to its probable cost ; his memorable reply was, " only Three Crowns."
