Commentary Scene where the main characters are Sancho and his donkey; the donkey embraced by a child in the foreground (well-drawn and engraved figures).
In the background, don Quixote, secondary.
Metaphorical sense of the episode; on the left, a student says: "de esta manera habían de salir de sus gobiernos todos los malos Gobernadores, como sale este pecador del profundo abismo, muerto de hambre, descolorido y sin blanca" (55:2).
In the distance, Duke's palace.
Good drawing and engraving. 
Notes 1 - This scene was not represented in Madrid: Ibarra, 1780.
