Two Frenchmen stand in consultation, with gloomy expressions; one on the left stands full face, his hands thrust in his breeches' pockets. He wears a sword. The other on the right bends towards him in profile to the left, saying, "Quel diable d'histoire". He has a long pigtail queue. They are scarcely caricatured, and their dress is neither foppish nor democratically slovenly.
