The mug depicts 18th-century Georgian conversation around the theme of John Newton’s life:

“I hear the new curate was a libertine in his younger days.”
“Well I never! No one would think it to see him now.”

“Do you know, William? I was an infidel and a libertine in my younger days.”
“Well I never, John! No one would think it to see you now.”
