New etched work defines the three windows above the heads of men in the wagon; burnishing of faint drypoint lines at the right of horse's head, behind its back and near wagon's wheels. Re-etching of sacks in wagon and the front wheel, which reaches top of wagon. There is foul-bite on the foreground parapet.
