Abstract:
"Two terrified riders meet face to face on Hounslow Heath; each takes the other for a highwayman. One (left) losing his stirrups holds out his purse, saying, "Here is my Money! Spare my Life". The other dropping his whip, puts his hand in his waistcoat pocket, saying: "Ah! - don't Fire! - I'll give all". Both have dropped their reins. A signpost (left) points 'To Hounslow'."--British Museum online catalogue.
