The following poem is found on the back of the print. The English translation of
original French on the print is as follows:
LOST, SIR...LOST ON ALL COUNTS...
Lost, sir...lost on all counts...and only this morning you told me that my cause was excellent.
Of course, I did...and I am still ready to defend it, if you want to appeal...but I warn you that in the Royal Court I do not defend for less than a hundred crowns!
The print was the "gift of Lessing Rosenwald , Jenkintown, Pa. December, 1953" to Moses Lasky. hgs 8/24/06.
