Abstract:
Image upper left: A satirical view a shooting party with the man center holding out his wig to a group of three men with a dog who hold guns and look amused at his dismay. To the left two other huntres and their dog look on also amused.
Image upper right: A woman in a bonnet and apron walks into a cottage holding a pitcher. One man (center) looks at her with surprise and horror. Another man sits at a table (left) and smiles at the scene. On the table are two cups and a pipe; behind the table, a tall clock. On the wall, a sporting calendar.
Image lower left, Plate 1: A satirical view of a squire's housekeeper wearing the newest fashion. She is shown full-length from the back with her gown bunched up over her blue quilted petticoat, splashed with mud, and short enough to show thick legs. The gown is decorated with a large sunflower, tight waist, and elbow-sleeves with ruffles. Her bonnet over her cap complete the contrast with contemporary, fashionable dress. See British Museum catalogue.
Image lower right, Plate 2: A woman stands under a tree talking to a yokel in a smock. She wears a red cloak and high pattens.
