Description

A woman holding a razor hands out a bunch of letters over a table, on which a long knife can be seen, to one of the two masked women standing in the room with her.

The caption reads in the original French: Florine prit le rasoir et fendit les plis du marocain qui s’ouvrit et laissa passer les lettres de Marie.

Caption based on Katharine Prescott Wormeley’s translation from A Daughter of Eve. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1895.
