The French Gentleman in London
Hover your mouse over to magnify
A night scene, where a bony French macaroni is surprised on the streets of London. A man has roughly gripped him by the shoulder with his left hand and is about to strike him a blow with his right. Behind him, partly obscured by his large black hat is a large nosed woman, mop held in right hand, left hand raised high with clenched fist aimed at the Frenchman who, knees trembling, wrings his hands together in front of him. He turns his head towards his assailants with a horrified expression. His sword hangs at his knees pointing upwards.
