- In an inn, a parson snores while his table companion, an old soldier with a wooden leg, recounts animatedly the battle of Dettingen, the map of which hangs on the wall behind them. Next to him, a dog sleeps by the roaring fireplace above which hangs a portrait, a carbine and a sword. The inn maid approaches the table with a roast on a platter.
