Abstract:
On the left, the Duke of Bedford, in a farmer's smock, unloads deer from a wagon in front of an open gate to a park. One of his deer, with a French cockade outlined behind its ear, faces a royal deer with a crown sketched on its shoulder. The King watches Bedford through a spy-glass from a window of the gatehouse on the right. Alarmed that the new arrivals will ruin his herd, he orders foreign deer out and the gates closed immediately. In the wall below the window is a closed door with a knocker in shape of a face, possibly Pitt's.
