Translation of text: Origin of Bedoins in Paris: -Well, isn't that Fouilloux! Since when have you become a Bedoin? -Don't remind me of it, Moussard! I have rented this costume for the ball on Sunday. After too much hot wine and cold veal I wanted to get my clothes back and return the costume. I was too broke to pay the 7 pounds 10 sous, so this robber of a costume lender forced me to sell dates from Algiers until I can pay back my debts. Please, Moussard, wouldn't you buy some, they are good for your stomach... -Rather not, I prefer French fries - So you're not my friend anymore? -Well, most of my friends are not Bedoins!" 18th-19th Century Subjects , Caricatures and Satirical
