- "Mounted yokels, riding right to left, make havoc in a farm-yard. One only wears uniform; he shouts at them from the right, with upraised hand. A man riding a horse with blinkers fires a blunderbuss, shutting his eyes; he damages a pigeon-house and kills pigeons. He is riding up to a well in which a terrified man has sought shelter, clutching the rope and looking over the top. Two other inexpert horsemen use clubs, one a flail, one a pitchfork. A witch-like old woman holding a broom lies on her back; her basket of cocks and hens has been overturned and the birds escape. A bull and a bulldog face each other belligerently. In the background (left) a fierce engagement between farmers, labourers, and horsemen is in progress."--British Museum online catalogue.
