Shows an equestrian 'Noble Sportsman' at a hunt talking to a 'Huntsman' standing beside the horse. The noble sportsman complains that his doctors advise him not to hunt this season owing to difficulties he experiences in breathing. The huntsman suggests ignoring the doctors and trying 'a mild blister', and the noble sportsman agrees and resolves to 'consult the 'vet'.
