In the sketch ‘Refreshment—Belgium,’ with which we commenced, last month, this series of illustrations, may be traced the idea of the large picture painted in 1846, and engraved by Mr. H. Cousens for Messrs. H. Graves 8: Co., under the title of ‘Refreshment—a Scene in Belgium.’ In the latter is a boy standing before a horse in a cart, the animal is eating some roots placed in a tub; behind them is an archway, just indicated in this sketch.
