Original text: Oui ! ma petite, voilà plus de 3 semaines qu’il n’est rien entré dans son pauvre corps à ce cher homme !...... – Je viens de lui faire une bonne petite soupe de choux au lard qu’il aime tant pour le ravigoter avec quelques pommes de terre que s’il fallait croire les médecins on serait bientôt mort de faim avec leur diète………

Daumier’s subject involves two women discussing the home care they are providing for a seriously ill man. Against his doctor’s advice, which one of the women says would lead to his death from hunger, he has been prepared a meal he appears much too ill to consume.

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