The Jayotype. Mr. Jay: The gentleman is married? The gentleman: Certainly, but how the devil did you know that? Mr. Jay: Oh, its that this instrument is perfect, no curve of the head, no bump on the forehead can escape it. The gentleman: How ingenious
(Le Jayotype. M. JAY - Monsieur est marié? - LE MONSIEUR - Certainement, mais comment diable voyez-vous ça? - M. JAY - Oh! c'est que cet instrument est si parfait qu'aucun contour de la tête, aucune protuberance du front surtout ne lui échappe. - LE MONSIEUR - Ah! c'est fort ingénieux!!)
