Containing upwards of two hundred miniature figures of equestrian and pedestrian groups, going to the races. Beginning on your left hand and passing to the right, the principal groups and figures in this piece range as follows: 1. A knowing one in a curricle, followed by a servant on horseback. 2. Two men, apparently in a state of intoxication, followed by a little pickpocket, habited as a chimney sweeper. 3. A wagon, with company: horses, admired for the difference of their positions, and their seeming unwillingness to an equal division of labour. Dog in the fore ground. 4. Horse and rider coming suddenly to the ground. 5. Carriage and four; leaders frightened by the kicking of a horse. 6. A blind man and dog. 7. A group of strollers, with a bear, monkey, &c. 8. A swell, riding at ease. 9. A mendicant, on crutches. 10. An open landau and four, at speed. 11. A boy, with a monkey taking off his hat. 12. Alarm, occasioned by a tit's having dismounted his rider. Among the remaining figures, which are too numerous to be particularized, are several racers, which are universally admired for their extreme delicacy, symmetry, and spirit. [P. 21.]
