(Drink hearty and pay promptly,

Sir John Falstaff is one of the most famous comic characters in all English literature, appearing in four of Shakespeare�s plays and later in Giuseppe Verdi�s final opera Falstaff, which was inspired principally by Falstaff�s follies in Shakespeare�s The Merry Wives of Windsor. Bardolph appears in both works as Falstaff�s drunken companion. This particular depiction is taken from a painting by Eduard von Gr�tzner (1846-1925).
