Hand coloured etching. Platemark: 245 x 345mm (9½ x 13½"). Large margins. Small tears in left and right margins. Old mount stain.
The interior of a cottage. Three visitors, a well-dressed man in top-boots (Mr. Stewart), a comely woman (Mrs. Mason), and a fashionably dressed young girl (Mary Mason), stand before the fire. Two box-beds are seen on the right with household items hanging over them, including twists of yarn, with a large cobweb against the wall. Small chickens peck at the contents of a large pot (a whey-pot) and plates on the floor. A cat laps from a bowl on a rough dresser above which plates and spoons are ranged. Through the doorway to the left is duck pond, beside which is a tall manure heap.
