The caption reads: 'As some sailors were passing by St. Paul's Cathedral; One of them pointing to the statues, asked who those Gemmen were? "the twelve apsotles to be sure" answered another. "How can that be?" said a third, "as why there only six of them!" "Shiver my timbers" replied the first "would you have them all on deck at once"'.
