“This was actually done at sunrise. The first state as usual is by far the best. The cleaning and ‘improvement’ of the plate having done nothing with it.”
This plate was rebitten and in the process became extensively foul-bitten especially at left and lower right. There is now a curving path at extreme right: the center bottom is shaded with diagonal strokes and there has been much drypoint work on trees so that they appear in full foliage, and on the tree shadows. The inscription added F S Haden 1859 (E, l.l.)
