Ninth illustration for Hardy's Under the Greenwood Tree, facing page 153.

Passage illustrated: “The game-keeper, Geoffrey Day, lived in the depths of Yalbury Wood; but the wood was intersected by a lane at a place not far from the house, and some trees had of late years been felled, to give the solitary cottager a glimpse of the occasional passer-by.
