Lettered, lower left: "Sir Joshua Reynolds Pinxt. | Rich in content, in natures bounty rich, | Nor bleating mountains; nor the chide of streams, | And hum of bees, inviting sleep sincere | into the guiltless breast beneath the shade, | or thrown at large amid the fragrand hay; | Nor ought besides of prospect, grove or song,"; lettered, lower right: "F. Bartolozzi R.A. Sculpt. | Din grottos, gleaming lakes, & fountain clear, | Here to dwells simple truth; plain innocence | Unsully'd beatuty; sound unbroen youth,| Patient of labour, with a little pleas'd; | Health ever blooming; unambitious soil. | Vide Thomson's Autumn."; lettered, lower center: "THE COTTAGERS. | No. 4, Macklins British Poets. | London, Publish'd Feby, 6th, 1794, by Thos. Macklin, Poets Gallery, Fleet Street."
