The warship De Zeehondt is being towed to sea from the harbour of Middelburg by four muscular draught horses. The identity of the departing person who is drawing so much attention from a multitude of lowand high-ranking people is unknown. However, it must have been someone of standing, for even Stadtholder Maurice’s yacht is present; it fires a salute.
