A woman walks into a room to discover a man sitting unconscious at his desk with a brazier next to him and papers and coals scattered on the floor.
The caption reads in the original French:
La Comtesse aperçut Nathan qui râlait assis sur son fauteuil de rédacteur en chef.
Caption based on Katharine Prescott Wormeley’s translation from A Daughter of Eve. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1895.
