"An Aristocrat" is the caption under the cartoon. A foppish middle-aged man with big rear end, paunch and huge facial features stands before a young woman; he sports a cigar, cane and bows on his feet. The young woman, in simple long-sleeved dress with apron, says, "Word of honor, sir! Seeing you from the back one would think you were scarcely18 years old." (Virginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
