“Good for Evil – 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: “A young man in Paris, intended to drown his dog in the River Seine. He hired a boat, and after rowing to the middle of the stream he threw the dog into the water. The dog tried to climb into the boat, but his hard-hearted master pushed him back, and in doing so he fell into the water himself, and would certainly have been drowned if the good old dog had not saved him.”
