“The Frog and the Eel – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “One evening, a party of Frogs were croaking on the edge of a pond, when an Eel passed by. ‘Well, friend,’ a frog cried to him, ‘will you sing with us?’ ‘I cannot’ said the Eel, ‘I have no voice.’ ‘Poor little fellow, how I pity you!’ ‘I am very much obliged to you,’ replied the Eel. ‘However, people who have heard you, have told me that a discreet silence is often better than constant chattering.”
