Description

A Dalmatian is seen from the side leaping forward in a courtyard. It is introduced as follows by the author:

The use to which this beautiful and shewy breed is applied, being so universally known both in town and country, needs a bare mention: how long it has been the fashion to keep these dogs, as attendants of the coach horse stable, and as precursors to the carriage, as if to clear the way and announce its approach, does not appear in our common books of reference on the subject; but the practice may probably be a century or two old, and was doubtless derived from continental usage.
