"Pupil of M. Comte. 95. Alsace, present and future. From the Paris exhibition, no. 1421. " The scene represents a young Alsatian woman, whose sad face exhibits the sorrows at the results of the last war, when the Prussians took her country from the French; but she still entertains the hope that france may again become possessor of the country, and that she may in the future become French; for this reason she has given to her little boy a toy of a French soldier, in order to keep before his young mind a remembrance of the country to which he belongs. This picture had a great success at the last Paris exhibition." [P. 11.]
