Mr. Fattet, the quack dentist, appears before his patient (in chair with bib around his neck) wearing velvet hat with waving plumes and an elaborate robe whose train is carried by 3 tiny ornately-dressed black children. An attendant stands at the side holding heavy scepter-like weapon. Two other men stand near patient, who looks quite confounded. (Virginia K. Anderson 10/01/93)
