- "The undergraduate walks diagonally (right to left) across the grass of a College court; under his arm is a book: 'Advice to Freshmen'. Behind him (right) the grossly obese Master stands in a Gothic doorway leading from a staircase, pointing angrily at the culprit. A shambling man with a broom stands obsequiously beside the doorway, looking over his shoulder apprehensively at the unconscious undergraduate, who leaves a trail of conspicuous footprints on the turf. A Fellow in a mullioned window next the doorway scowls at the young man through a glass."--British Museum online catalogue.
