About this work

Description

Illustrates the following episode in Cockton's story: "After a most agreeable walk, during which a variety of scenes occurred to excite the curate's astonishment, Julia and her party reached Clerkenwell-green, and as Fred was of course anxious to enter the prison unperceived, he led them past the church towards "Hicks's Hall", at the entrance of which many persons were standing. As this scene appeared to excite their curiosity, they crossed, but they had no sooner done so than the curate, who was behind Fred, Julia, and Helen, rushed past them exclaiming, "There he is! There he is! That bad man! There, there he is!" and seizing a person who had just left the Hall by the throat, held him rmly against the lamp-post. Lydia ew towards her father to restrain him, while Helen shrieked and almost fainted. It was Tynte! and Fred no sooner heard his name uttered, than for more than one reason he disengaged his arms with the view of securing the wretch; but before he could reach him he broke from the curate's grasp, and ew round the corner in an instant. Fred pursued him, and he dashed down a thickly-inhabited hole called Mutton-hill, knocking down every person and every thing which stood in his way. Fred still followed, shouting to the persons ahead to stop him, but he dashed past them all, and on reaching the opposite verge of the hole, turned to the left towards Field-lane, and in an instant disappeared!"
