This 'Map of Matrimony' appeared presumably in a young lady's scrap book. The map features the 'Kingdom of Suspense', 'Proposal Point' and the 'Quicksands of Censure' amongst many other emotional states. Also on the page is a small round view of Bristol Hot Wells published by T. Hancock, an unknown house with cows grazing in the foreground, and two cherubs being hissed at by dogs. The page also has inscriptions by the young lady. A heart encasing, in finest handwriting, the words 'What Island is most subject to Love?' and a note; 'Han I am a thing Nobody wants'. Perhaps the owner took up residence on the 'Land of Spinsters'.
