54 THE DANCE OF DEATH. PLATE XX.THE ADVOCATE. A prudent man foreseetli the evil, and hidcth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished. Prov. xxii. 3. The example of the Judge seems to authorize the Advocate to get himself well paid for his prevarication, and that even in the presence of his poor client, whose wretched condition would raise compassion in any breast less obdurate than that of the lawyer. But Death will avenge the oppressed; he is pouring into the hands of the Advocate money in abundance, of which he will have little use, for he is, at the same instant, shewing him, with an air of insult, his sand run out. PLANCHE XX.L'AVOCAT. L'exemple du Jugesemble autoriser PAvo-cat a se faire payer cherement ses prevarications, & cela meme en presence de son pauvre client qui se tient dans un certain eloignement, & dontTetat miserable feroit pitiq a une ame moins dure que celle de Phomme de loi. Mais la Mort vengera Popprime; elle verse abondarnment dans les mains de PAvocat de Pargent dont il ne profitera guere car elle lui montre en merae temsd'un air raoqueur, son sable ecoule.
