"Three men gorge at a dinner-table laden with food and wine. A fat man with the table-cloth tucked under his chin gnaws a bone. A more elegant man (left), perhaps the 'President' of BMSat 8850, but wearing ear-rings, offers a bare bone to a little ragged boy. A third (right) drinks. A man-servant stands behind, another (right) with bludgeon and clenched fist drives back a starving couple who stand in the doorway making gestures of supplication. Above the design: 'Charité bien ordonnée commence par soimême'. Text, 'James', ii. 15, 16. Similar prints in England are directed against parish officers, cf. BMSat 6877."--British Museum online catalogue.
