Voltaire, the French Philosopher, and Mr Watson, (An Edinburgh Messenger.)
Reflected in the lenses of a pair of spectacles balanced on a person's nose are the portraits of Voltaire, the famous French philosopher and Edinburgh working man. The men appear to look at each other from their positions within the framed lenses. Although differently attired and with different hairstyles, their likeness is unmistakeable.
