Balancing Act

French political cartoon of French cardinal Jean-Sifrein Maury (1746-1817), archbishop of Paris. Library of Congress description : "Print shows Abbé Maury walking a tightrope, attended by the devil disguised as a jester, as nobles encourage him from the left, and on the right, a man and woman, representing members of the Third Estate, attempt to impede his progress."
