Lettering note

Lettering continues: "Les braves campagnards quittent tous leurs quartiers, / Pour chasser dans le bois, lievres, chevreuils, sangliers, / Le gibier attrapé, sans facon on l'appréte, / Pendant que leurs moitiés parmi des favoris / Ecoutent le concert. Tremblez, pauvres maris! / Les cors de chasse font souvent ceux de la tete. Cum priv. sac. caes. maj.
