Description

A man in uniform plays blind man’s buff at a reception and starts groping around as a woman moves away and another, holding a note in her hand, stays close by.

The caption reads Le favori in the original French and is the title of a play by Jacques-Arsène-François-Polycarpe Ancelot, which premiered on October 6, 1831.
