"(Germ.) Munich. Couldn't resist it. 12 x 14. A not impossible incident of real life told with remarkable care and skill. The younger of these two luckless wights about to be locked up cannot resist the chance of annexing the watchman's handkerchief. The artist may mean to say that if he was not so dreadfully bent on his work, as his face and attitude show. his property might remain in his pocket."
