"Scene by a roadside pond opposite a picturesque inn (right). A few country-people watch a distressed cat in a bowl which floats precariously. An angry old woman strides into the water to rescue the animal, but is restrained by a friend. Other spectators watch with amused delight; they wear holiday finery, imitating fashionable dress. A boy, holding back a dog, and a girl sit together on the bank. A young couple in a gig at the inn-door watch the cat. Behind the pond (left) a tandem runs away overturning a gig."--British Museum online catalogue.
