Chickens feed capons; or, A dissertation on the pertness of our youth in general, especially those trained up at tea-tables; with the true picture of a petit maitre and a modern fine lady; some hints on abuses in education; not forgetting the insolence and scorn with which the generality of young persons treat their elders and betters. Also a very remarkable tragic case, which may serve as a warning to persons in years, how they give the staff out of their own hands, and leave themselves to the mercy of others.
