lupe

Original Text:
Un petit jeu de société avec cette légende: Mouton vole, chacon (?) vole, notaire vole! ah! un gage M. Théophile, un gage. Vous n'avez pas levé le doigt au notaire.. et pourtant aujourd'hui jusqu'au enfant de sept ans tous le monde sait qu'on notaire vole parfaitement.


Translation:
Little children's game with this text:
Sheep fly, everybody (?) flies, notaries fly!... ah! you lost, Monsieur Théophile, you lost! You didn't raise your finger when the notary came up... but every child of seven years knows that a notary can fly very well.
(Note: play on words: voler meaning to fly and to steal).
