- "A fat country-woman, threatened by a fierce dog, has fallen face downwards in front of a pair of horses, causing them to stop suddenly, and paw the ground. The terrified coachman loses his hat and wig, the footman is flung across the roof of the low carriage towards the box. An elderly lady looks out of the carriage window to call: "John!" He answers: "Coming Ma'm." All are broadly burlesqued. On the door is a coat of arms with an earl's coronet."--British Museum online catalogue.
