Summary

Print shows an interior view of a room in which a dapperly dressed young man, "Booby Squander, Esq.", turns over the deed to the family estate, his inheritance, to a money lender, the usurer "Solomon Thrifty", in return for a handful of coins. This scene is mirrored in an open window in the background where a spider has spun a web and caught a moth.
