This brief comic vignette was described in R.W. Paul's catalog as "Comic scene by Mons. Paul Clerget and Miss Ross Selwicke, representing the husband's return", and the time reference in the title tells us all we need to know. It's a study in often quite risque body language, with the husband clearly the worse for drink, and the wife determined both to remonstrate with him and to get him undressed and into bed as quickly as possible.
