|Commentary||Don Quixote in bed talking to the priest (or a doctor?); also in the scene the housekeeper (notice her sad expression) and the niece, knelt and leant on the bed.
Good drawing and engraving; the figure of the priest/doctor is especially remarkable, his face has been drawn as a real portrait.
