[Translated text: Monsieur Daumier, your Robert-Macaire series is delightful. It's an exact picture of the sins of our time... the faithful portrait of innumerable crooked characters one finds everywhere - in business, in politics, in bureaucracy, in finance, everywhere! everywhere! The scoundrels must bear you quite a grudge... But you have the esteem of honest people... You haven't been given the Cross of Honor yet?... That's shocking!]
