    The left sheet of a three-plate composition, BMSat 5925-7. Riders, probably in Hyde Park, looking with astonishment at an elderly lady (right) walking from left to right followed by a little black boy carrying her umbrella. She wears an enormous calash hood, see BMSat 5434, &c, and holds in her left hand a shepherdess's crook. Three men (left) ride side by side, from left to right, the nearest pulls on his reins, leaning back, the next looks at the lady through his spy-glass, the third, staring open-mouthed, lashes his horse. The horse of a stout man riding from right to left, immediately behind the lady, is rearing. In the foreground an old woman sits by the roadside with a sheaf of ballads or newspapers. Behind (left) are trees. 3 February 1781
