A fox comes out of an arched door opening beneath a tree carrying vases filled jewels
My care was now centered on this: to search and discover the spot
Wherein was the treasure concealed, and stealthily take it away.

Description

A fox spies on another who comes out of an arched door opening beneath a tree with two vases in his arms, one of which is filled jewels.

The caption reads in the original German:
Meine Sorge ging nun dahin, den Ort zu entdecken,
Wo der Schatz sich befände, damit ich ihn heimlich entführte.
