"A visit inside a tent" is the caption under this cartoon. A pipe-smoking French soldier lies against a pile of his belongings within a tent, two pistols and a portable chest on the ground beside him. The pole holding up the tent also carries a lamp and the soldier's cap and sword. "Enter!" calls out the soldier, glancing toward the opening of the tent, where a lion begins to make its way in. (Virginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
