From: The Lay of the Last Minstrel: Illustrated with Engravings from the Designs of Richd. Westall. London: John Sharpe, 1809 (facing p. 90)

The plate depicts the Lady of Branksome Hall discovering the wounded Deloraine (Lay of the Last Minstrel, canto III, stanza 22). It illustrates lines 7-8:

'She thought some spirit of the sky
Had done the bold moss-trooper wrong.'
