This is one of those beautiful home scenes which address all our gentler feelings. Sea scenes may impart sublime ideas, but they are wanting in individual interest, they are the common property of most men; or if a Briton feels more proudly in looking on ocean's expanse than others, yet he must share his pride with every subject of the Imperial islands. . . . Here, in this shaded little dell, the spectator himself, would form an object of importance; in that cottage shaded by old trees, his evening of life might glide away; and in the little church opposite, his weekly workship [sic] might be most placidly offered. . . . A group characteristic of the simple country in which the scene is laid, is on the road. A small white horse draws a rugged cart which is in charge of two females, who are vividly delineated; a third female figure in the hat and red cloak common in Wales, pauses by the cart, in conservation with the drivers . . .
