For the Volunteers’ Journal – A card (abridged)

A certain libidinous gouty old gentleman, of the aldermanic tribe, not very far from Grafton Street, is desired to desist from his endeavours to seduce the innocent females of his neighbourhood, otherwise, besides having his name and place of abode made public, he shall undergo a surgical operation, to qualify him for becoming, after he has passes the grand climacteric, a pupil of the celebrated signor’s Giordani and Leoni.

Grand climacteric refers to the 63rd year of a persons life.
