A pencil drawing by Branwell Brontë, brother to Charlotte and Emily, drawn in 1829. The tiny note on the bottom left corner of the scene reads 'Bewick', suggesting that Branwell copied the scene from a woodcut within one of Thomas Bewick's publications. On the reverse of the page is an interesting collection of rough sketches and doodlings, including a dog, soldiers and reading ladies.
