A rider and his horse are suspended over a swamp as the rider keeps pulling on his braid
Here would I have died infallibly, had not the strength of my arm pulled me out by my own braid, along with the horse, which I held firmly secured between my legs.

Description

A rider and his horse are suspended over a swamp, dripping with water, as the rider keeps pulling on his braid.
The caption reads in the German edition: Hier hätte ich unfehlbar umkommen müssen, wenn nicht die Stärke meines eigenen Armes mich an meinem eigenen Haarzopfe, samt dem Pferde, welches ich fest zwischen meine Knie schloß, wieder herausgezogen hätte.
