London sportsmen shooting flying

Detailed description below

Two ‘cits’ are shown out for a day’s sport in the countryside. One is rather thin and fashionably dressed, while the other is an older, fat John Bull type. The younger man leaps a low fence, firing his rifle at a flight of birds, his clipped poodle leaping beside him. His fat companion stands on the far side of a ow stile, gun in hand, an eager bulldog at his side; he tries to catch his hat which his friend has knocked off.
