  • inscription bottom (positional attribute): Tes gains sont fort petits, et je plains ton malheur, / Mais non, non, sur ton sort je timbe dans l’erreur ; / Car c’est assez gagner, que de passer la vie / Exemt d’ambition, sans chagrin, sans envie. / Si tu pouvais pourtant, aulieu de tes couteaux, / Aiguiser l'esprit lourd et la langue importune / De beaucoup d'ignorants; de beaucoup de nigauds, / Bientost tu jouirois d'une haute fortune. /Tiré du cabinet de Mr. de Fonspertuis, et gravé d'après l'Original / a Paris, chez Le Bas , graveur du Cabinet du Roy, rue de la Harpe; vis a vis la rue percée dans la porte cochére
