Aktien - Reiterei
Black-and-white engraving entitled "horse shares." The scene below is observed above by three men holding the Ten Commandments. In German, the text reads : "Abraham: Sie sind maschuker, alles reit, Jetzt reit'n gar auch unsere Leut! Isaack: Der Jzig zieht die Knie ans Maul. Gebt Acht! Der fällt meih Seel von Gaul. Jakob: Der hat doch sonst'n guten Schlufs, Räb Jzig! -- was machst du für Stufs? Jzig: Herunter bringt'r mich doch nit. Er geht am End schon wieder Schritt. Heruntergeworfener. Das Pferd hat wie mein böles Weib, 5000 Teufel in den Leib! Streicher: Wir streichen euch Drei oder Vier, Dann wird es ruhig euer Thier. Madame Pfau: Das Zettelchen ist wirklich gut. Es langt zum Mantel und zum Hut. Magd: Mein braver Herr, der an mich denkt Hat mir die Aktie geschenkt. Schnipp: Komt! schnaufen wir ein wenig aus, Und reiten hin vor's Kaffehaus. Schnapp: Wird's mit der Eisenbahn gut gehn. Dann war's man wie die Gäule stehn. Schnur: Ich zieh den meinen in den Stall. Und deke mich für jeden Fall. Schnepeper: Der reit' Galopp der Trab der Schritt. Ich denk, ich bleib' so in der Mitt. Stallmeister Meseritzer: Macht was ihr wollt, dös wahls ich doch. Mer wherreitn euch alle noch." In English, the text reads : "Abraham: You are crazy, everything is ready. Even our people are now riding! Isaack: Jzig is pulling his knees into his mouth. Be cautious! He's missing the soul of Gaul . Jakob: He typically has a good ending anyways, Rabbi Jzig! -- what nonsense are you doing. Jzig: He'll not bring me down yet. He goes to the end and takes another step again. He is the thrown down one. That horse has 5000 devils in his body, just like my evil woman. Streicher: We are going to mark out three or four for you all, then it will become quiet for you animals. Madame Pfau: The little note is very good. It is enough for the coat to the hat. Magd: My well behaved Sir, who thinks of me, gave me the shares of stock as a gift. Schnipp: Come on! Let us take a breath for a bit, and let's ride ahead to the Coffee House. Schnapp: Will it go well with the train. Then it would stand like the nags. Schnur: I'm going to guide mine into the stables. And will cover them for any situation. Schnepeper: The rider gallops, the trot, the step. I think, I'm going to stay in the middle like this. Stallmeister Meseritzer: You all can do what you want, that's what I vote for. We will outride all of you eventually."
