More information about the print:

Who does not know the old fable of the two travellers who quarrelled about their claim to an oyster found by them simultaneously on the margin of the sea, and who referred the dispute to a lawyer passing that way, with no other result than to behold the oyster eaten before their faces, and to receive each a shell for his portion? Here is the famous story grotesquely but pleasingly rendered. The travellers are two pilgrims, with sandals, beads, and scrip, complete; and the learned gentleman is a mediaeval French doctor of the law. The rocky and barren sea-shore is a capital piece of scenery; and the self-satisfied pomposity of the lawyer is most amusingly contrasted with the dazed and disappointed looks of the holy men.
