The real Truth is, any one would guess him to have been a seven Years Apprentice to the Prince of Darkness; for he is never without a pair of Tormentors in his Hand, and the Devil in his Mouth, and his Phiz so everlastingly reaking with Sweat and Greafe, as if he was come just piping hot from Old Nick's Kitchin.
Edward Ward apparently did not think so highly of sea cooks. The above is taken from the "A Sea-Cook" chapter of his 1744 The Wooden World Dissected in the Character of a Ship of War. The book is a collection of "characters"—that is, short literary sketches of particular social types.
Phiz had, according to the currently available evidence, been around for about 60 years at the time of Ward's book. It's a playful shortening and alteration of the word physiognomy, which refers to facial features. It sees little use now, but appears in the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, George Eliot, Herman Melville, and Lucy Maud Montgomery, among others.
