Private Conversation

They'll come. Listen Hortense, at about midnight, or half past, see? I'll be busy... Make sure you keep my Anténor out of the way...

Description

This illustration is from the series “Les débardeurs.” At a costumed dance, two women have stepped aside to a corner of the room by a curtain to settle the details of their strategy for the evening.
The caption reads in the original French:

Ils vont venir : Écoute Hortense ! sur le coup de minuit, minuit et demi, vois-tu ?
J’aurai à faire… Tu t’arrangeras pour m’égarer mon Anténor…
