Het Committe Van Algemeen Welzyn

Though the title is in Dutch, the writing on the bottles are in French and reference the French reign of terror. The cartoon is one of a series in the book "Hollandia Regenerata" by David Hess (1771-1843), published in 1797. The images satirize the Batavian Repblic and the French relationship with the Dutch.
