THE DANCE OF DEATH. PLATE XXII I.THE MERCHANT. 57 Tiie getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seeketh death. Prov. xxi. (5. Escaped from the dangers of the sea, and safely arrived in port, this rich Merchant believes himself now in perfect safety; but he is mistaken. Employed in counting his money, examining his goods, and treating about their disposals a bad customer, Death himself, comes up, and it is his person only that he wants to bargain for. PLANCHE XXIILLE MARCHAND. Echappe aux perils de la mer, arrive* heu-reusement au port, ce riche Marchand se croit en pleine securite ; il se trompe. Occupe a compter son argent, a, examiner ses marchandises & a traiter de leur vente, un mauvais chaland, la Mort ellememe, arrive, & ce n'est que de sa personne qu'elle veut faire emplette.
