Hudibras and Ralpho happen upon a mob engaged in bear-baiting, which Hudibras considers "idolatrous and pagan." They prepare to do battle with the crowd led by the Amazon Trulla and Crowdero, the peg-legged fiddler.

Purchased by the John Herron Art Institute, Indianapolis, Indiana, now the Indianapolis Museum of Art, in 1911.
