Abstract:
Twenty pairs of people, arranged in panels in four rows, the first eight of which are engaged in a range of activities in which the pair misunderstand each other owing to mispronunciation indicating their differences in class. The next four panels illustrate scenes in which the pair debate the virtues and benefits of drinking various spirits. The final eight panels depict the attempts of a "Master Sargent" to train a country yokel as a soldier.
