A visit to Bedlam

Three mad persons look out the small windows of their cells. The man on the left wears a makeshift crown and grins out at the horrified couple who looks in. Above his cell is written “You lie, you mad dog, I am as hones a woman as any Parson’s wife in London!” And futher below, “You are a cuckold.” The two men on the right look at the two scowling women in their cells in horror.
