Satire on the third marriage of Lord Abercorn, 3 Apr. 1800, to Lady Anne Hatton.

Summary: 

Print shows a tall man (Lord Abercorn), with long horns on his forehead, putting a ring on the finger of a young woman (Lady Anne Hatton), who turns aside to point up at a high alcove, serving as an altar, in which are the torso of a grinning satyr and a long horned billy goat in the act of sniffing the rump of a nanny goat. Behind her (left) is a woman veiled in a shroud (Catherine Copley). Behind the bridegroom are three weeping young women, identified as Lord Abercorn's daughters by his first wife, Harriet Margaret, Katharine Elizabeth, and Maria.
