“- Sir, you who are so good, can't you get me small position?.. I am able to furnish you the best references on my honesty.. - You have always remained honest?.. But in that case, my worthy man, why the devil have you come to me? You ought to know that I concentrate all my business and all my charities on this highly interesting class of freed convicts! Why don't you go and steal something or at least kill a bit.. and once you are out of Toulon-prison, come and see me.. I'll be delighted to offer you a helping hand!,” plate 19 from Les Philantropes Du Jour. Creator: Honoré Victorin Daumier, French, 1808-1879. Date: 1845. Object reference: RX20769/2127.
