Hi !
what does "weeping pints" means in the following text?

"High expectations were raised by fictional worlds filled by “love, lovers, loving, martyred maidens swooning in secluded lodges, postilions slain
every other mile, horses ridden to death on every page, dark forests, aching hearts, promising, sobbing, kisses and tears, little boats by moonlight, nightingales
in the grove, gentlemen brave as lions, tender as lambs, virtuous as a dream , always well dressed, and weeping pints”.
"The Moral Laboratory" by Frank Hakemulder
