A fat parson stands in the grounds of a country house as a footman on the right doffs his hat to him and a dog jumps on him in greeting. A fashionably dressed young woman walks on the park grounds (left) and looks coyly back towards them; behind her in the distance is a folly. Beyond the iron gates (right) -- the pillars decorated with eagles -- another servant waits by the carriage. In the distance (right) is a church spire
