Alexander, one of the old Scottish Kings, having fallen from horse in the chase, is suddenly turned upon and attacked by the Stag, to the great astonishment and consternation of his attendants. MacKenzie, the figure in buff-colour, with the jewel in his hat, rescues the King by killing the stag. For this act MacKenzie was ennobled, and it was for his descendant, the Earl of Seaforth, that Mr. West painted the Picture, of which this is a copy, on a reduced scale. [P. 7.]
