Hand-colored etching of a scene from Karl Borromäus Alexander Sessa's satirical play "Unser Verkehr" (The Company We Keep). Etching after Johann Michael Voltz. In German, the text reads : "Harr Kerperol, Harr Affezier, Harr Generol! Hebbe Se de Gnod, hebbe Se dä grausse Gnod und lasse Se mich nit schiessen. Ich halt es nit aus, ich künns nit vertragen, ich künn nit riechen dä Pulver, ich fall in dä Ohnmacht!" In English, the text reads : "Sir Corporal, Sir Officer, Sir General! Have mercy, have great mercy and don't leave me under fire. I can't stand it any more, I can't endure it, I can't smell the gun powder any longer, I am going to faint!"
