The Angler's Story of the Lady of Glenwith Grange
MY practice in the art of portrait-painting, if it has done nothing else, has at least fitted me to turn my talents (such as they are) to a great variety of uses. I have not only taken the likenesses of men, women, and children, but have also extended the range of my brush, under stress of circumstances, to horses, dogs, houses, and in one case even to a bull&#8212;the terror and glory of his parish, and the most truculent sitter I ever had. The beast was appropriately named &#147;Thunder and Lightning,&#148; and was the property of a gentleman-farmer named Garthwaite, a distant connection of my wife&#146;s family.
