Description
Two quantities of wood on the same float, one in the form of fire-wood and one in the form of a coffin. Through megaphones the lecturer explains that in the cholera season people are compelled to use wood of one kind or another. If they do not use fire-wood they will have to use coffin wood. The speechlet ends with the sentence 'Fire wood - coffin. Take your choice'.
