- Object: The Poacher Detected
A gentleman's study, where a gamekeeper stands accusing a poacher, holding up his proof, a dead hare, while the poacher stands holding his hat, looking glumly at the gentleman, who sits on the left, looking up from his books and letters, his chin in his hand; servants peering round the door on the right and the poacher's dog and the gentleman's pug growling at each other; after Kidd; remarque proof before letters. 1831
