Two images; at top a young huntsman sits on his bed pulling on his boots, with two dogs eagerly waiting by his side; his wife sleeps soundly. Below an old gamster sits on chair next to side table in rage and despair, a cocked pistol, broken candle, dice, and paper inscirbed 'money lost 10,000' on the table; his wife in bed alarmed.
