This is a very small old painting on panel, and was formerly in the possession of Mr. Sully. It exhibits in the foreground a grey horse lying down bleeding from a wound in his side, and near him is thrown the body of his rider. To the left are two other cavaliers on a cream and a grey horse, charging with impetuosity on a party, who are partly obscured by the smoke from a pistol. In the distance on the right may be indistinctly seen two more horsemen hastening to the scene of the action. [P. 5.]
