The interior of a well-furnished room with an open door. By the fire (left) in an arm-chair is a magistrate. In his left hand is a glass spilling its contents, in his right a smoking tobacco-pipe. Beside him (right) is a table with books and writing-materials behind which sits his clerk, pen in mouth, spectacles on forehead, scrutinizing a group of three. On the wall over the clerk's head is a picture of an ass kicking over a statue of Justice.
