'The Reverend Philip Honeywood and his Beagles at Mark's Hall in Essex, with Mr Richard Lumley, Viscount Galway, Mr G S Foljambe'.

The beagles in the present picture were considered the most perfect pack in England. They were sold to the Prince Consort for a large sum. They stood about 14in high and were incredibly fast. The uniform for the Hunt Staff was black velveteen jackets and white cord trousers.
Displayed in a contemporary ebonised and gilded picture frame.
