The French text reads:
"L'ennemi menace la France, vous vous élancez, il est foudroyé! Les peuples gémissent dans l'esclavage, ils vous tendent les bras, et vous les affranchissez du joug qui les opprime!!!... Le drapeau tricolore couvre de ses plis généreux les capitales conquises par vous!!! et vous vous plaignez ? Quand il n'est pas un mortel qui ne vous porte envie!..."

or

"The enemy threatens France, you rush forward, you strike them down! The public groans in slavery, they reach their arms out to you, and you liberate them from the yoke which oppresses them!!!... The generous folds of the tricolor flag cover the capitals you conquered!! And you complain? When there isn't one mortal who envys you!..."
Beneath the image, the printer is identified at lower left ("Lith[ographie] de Gihaut frères, Éditeurs") with the address at lower right ("Boulevard des Italiens, No. 5, Paris").
