    Depicts a hirsute man reading passages from Charles R Darwin's Descent of Man to his wife and daughter. He informs his wife that the family is descended from a 'hairy quadruped'. His wife retorts: 'Speak for yourself'; she denies that she is descended in this way, and adds that the child takes after her.
