Lettering note

Lettering paraphrased and translated in "The evolution of urine analysis", 1911, as follows: "The consultation. My child, observe, from this I see / (So sure as I physician be) / Your swelling, pains and fretting, too, / Are signs of something wrong I trow; / But be assured you'll soon recover, / I promise, ere' nine months are over."
Lettering continues: "Mamie! par cette urine je crois, qu'en bon docteur je vois, qu'enflure, point et vomissement, dans neuf mois passeront doucement." The lettering is repeated in german
