Our student, by love advised,

Description

A man wearing a feathered hat, a cloak, and breeches stands on a doorstep at night, leaning toward the door as though whispering to the other side.
This illustration accompanies the tale “Le gros dogue et le petit chien” (The big mastiff and the little dog).

The caption reads in the original French:

Notre écolier, averti par l’amour,
Venait japper à la porte d’Élise :
Vous eussiez dit la voix d’un petit chien.
