THEFT, reprefented, in painting, &c. by a pale youth,
cloathed in a wolf's fkin, his arms and legs bare, with winged
feet at midnight; in one hand a purfe, a knife in the other with
a picklock ; the ears of a hare, and feems to be in fear.—Youth
fhews imprudence, that will not take warning ; thepalenefs and
hare's ears, continual fufpicion and fear, and therefore it loves
darknefs ; the fkin, becaufe the wolf lives by rapine 5 the bar-
rennefs fhews him in diftrefs ; and the winged feet his flying
from iuftice.
