Inscription

Below in graphite pencil: No/ 5 title, B, You will notice that the figures at the left are a little/ lower than those at the right:( the street slopes away/ gradually on this side-) The farmers back their carts/ against teh curbstones and while they peddle their foods, their/ wives and daughters sit and survey the scene from the front/ seat or sometimes, as I have represented, take part in the/ traffic. The horses, really, would hardly show throught the/ crowd- I meant 15 hose The boy who is running nearer/ the front- over; more notes in graphite on verso
