"Anglers, using floats, stand on the neat bricked banks of the Canal. A fat 'cit' fishes patiently; a younger man in riding-dress says: "I often see you here Sir pray do you find much sport." The other answers: "Not much Sir - but I had a fine nibble about an hour ago." Two boys wearing short mess-jackets, long pantaloons, and helmets resembling those of light horse volunteers are together on the right. One says to his friend: "I say Jack Ill go there's no fish here." The other answers: "No fish - I like that - why Captain Cheshire the Cheesemonger of our Corps - caught one about a week ago almost as long as my hand." A dog swims in the water. On the farther bank are six other anglers."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
