    Shows a group of people conversing in a drawing room. In the foreground, several men gather around a young woman, and in the background the woman's husband talks to a doctor. The husband, Mr Kiljoye, tells the doctor that he thinks his wife has 'Such fearful depression of spirits!'. But when the doctor interjects that his wife looks like the 'life of the party', Mr Kiljoye points out that while she 'bears up in company' she is not so happy 'when we are together alone'.
