Abstract:
Five couples, finely dressed men and ladies at an outdoor luncheon party are stampeded by bees. Confusion is made worse by one man who falls backwards from a bench, which he tilts up, clutching the table-cloth and dragging over a bowl of punch. One of the ladies (left) has fainted and is being revived by a gentleman who pours a glass of water on her face. The dog on the rigth barks at the confusion.
