Uneasy-looking gentleman stands bundled up in boots, riding-pants, jacket, beaked cap. Facing him is his servant with negroid features but dressed in clothing more like a gentleman's than like a servant's. He says with a smile: "Monsieur has done everything in excellent order; it's the outfit of a true gentleman. If need be, Monsieur could prepare himself by himself to go out into the world." (Virginia K. Anderson 12/10/93)
