This pleasing figure is the poetry as well as the prose of "the profession." The net dangling from the shoulder, and the fish slung at the girdle, show the calling, while the figure is Greek in its expression. [P. 59; engraving on p. 59 is signed "M. Orr--Co." and depicts a standing male figure attired in classical garb.]
