Label:A group of five parsons sit around a table in an inn courtyard, drinking and smoking. A maid brings a large bowl towards them. Another of the group has turned towards a tree to relieve himself. In a window over the door, a young man and maid are embraced. A dog sits begging at the table. Of interest is a painting over the exterior door. In the distance, a spire of a church can be seen.
