Footnotes

  • INCLUDING MANY CHARMING AND SATIRICAL CARTOONS. The album opens with the sketch entitled "The Memoirs of Baron A." with, what is presumed to be, a self-caricature underneath which is written: "The fire of youth is out, and in its place blooms that cold evergreen men call regret. Cruel memory impartiality brings back, with what we would not, what we could forget. Finished the fun, remains the aftermath: rheumatics, deafness, corpulence and debt."
