"Sir Richard Worse-than-sly, exposing his wife's bottom; - o fye!" by James Gillray (1782) - "Remarkably, this incident was not a figment of Gillray’s imagination.  All was revealed in open court when Sir Richard Worsley brought a suit against one Captain Bissett for ‘criminal conversation’ (ie, adultery) with his wife.  Worsley had indeed hoisted Bissett onto his shoulders so that the captain could gaze through a bathhouse window on his wife’s nakedness."

Mid-18th century Swiss Spittoon at the Historisches Museum, Basel - From the curators' comments: "Little has been written on the history of hygienic utensils. At the time they were used they were no doubt taken for granted, and later discussion of them was prevented by decorum. In the field of ceramics this applies to the 'Bourdalou' (small transportable chamber pot) and the spittoon."
