The caption accompanying this lithograph may suggest that the lawyers are talking about how they determine charges for their legal services. They are, however, actually discussing coach tariffs, which at the time involved either paying drivers by the hour or by the distances they traveled.

Included in the Honoré Daumier III: Law, Medicine, and Social Satire exhibition, 2018.
