XIX. The Advocate
The rich client is putting a fee into the hands of the dishonest lawyer. Death also contributes, but reminds him that his glass has run out. To this admonition he seems to pay little regard. Behind is the poor suitor, wringing his hands, and lamenting that poverty disables him from coping with his wealthy adversary.
