Athenaeum, 10 May 1873:
…shows a hunting party halted at the door of a country inn: some, the ladies especially, are gossipping; one or two take refreshments. All the figures are expressive, the actions are varied and truthful, proving the forethought of the designer and his wealth of invention. The horses, not less than the riders, are admirably drawn, and justify the labour expended on the subject, which is, however, not worthy of the ability of the artist. This picture, as a whole, is very bright and faithful.
The Times, 26 June 1873:
Mr. Eyre Crowe, who usually sends us some embodiment of literary anecdote, has this year confined himself to bits of contemporary life of the more prosaic kind. If even such subjects as … the halt of a hunting part (45) for sherry and ale in front of a hospitable country house … can be made interesting by sincerity and conscientiousness of treatment, what fruit might not be expected from a deeper and tenderer or even more daring grasp of contemporary life?
