Mr. Briggs & his doings. After a long and exciting struggle Mr B. is on the point of landing his prize, when unfortunately the line breaks. However, in much less time than it has taken to make this imperfect sketch,-accoutered as he is he plunges in, and after a desperate encounter, he secures a magnificent salmon, for which he declares he would not take a guinea a pound.
