A Dictionary of the Sussex Dialect.
At Salisbury the Mummers used to be called John Jacks, and there was a fifth performer called John Jack, who was represented with a large hump-back, and concluded the play by coming forward and saying,

Little John Jack, With my wife and family at my back, Roast beef, plum-pudding, and mince-pie, No one loves them better than I!
God save the Queen!
