Description:

Color print of three men engaged in a discussion. One is seated holding a newspaper. A second is standing with a knife in one hand and a piece of wood in the other, while a third stands with one foot on a log and an axe which he had been using to chop stuck in another log. A pile of wood is behind them on the left and a log cabin with a woman in the doorway on the right. A child is pulling the pants of the man who was chopping.
