Errors and Variations:

There are two different versions of card 195.

What is presumably the first version shows a farmer from the Memelland (the part of Germany now somewhere in Russia). On the back it is claimed that these people like cheap "schnaps" and it tells the story of a christening where everyone got so drunk that they went home and left the baby in the pub. The other version shows the same farmer and tells of how brave he is.
