A man in a striped gown speaks to another sitting in front of the fireplace holding a bellows
The same rule which applies to your books, my dear neighbor, applies to my bellows. Come and blow at my house as much as you like and you'll be doing me a favor, but my bellows isn't going anywhere.

Description

A man in a striped gown stands in his reception room smoking a pipe, and speaks to another sitting in front of the fireplace with a bellows in his hands.

The caption reads in the original French: Il en sera de mon soufflet, mon cher voisin, comme de vos livres, venez souffler chez moi tant que vous voudrez, vous me ferez plaisir, mais mon soufflet ne sort pas de chez moi.
