    Shows Mr Punch as a 'Head Game Keeper' standing next to John Bull (also dressed as a game keeper) at a gate that opens into a large field. Mr Punch tells his friend that he 'really musn't shoot with the old muzzle-loader' and gives him a Snider Enfield rifle, a reference to Jacob Snider's converted muzzle-loaders, which he boasts is the 'best that money can buy'.
