|Commentary||When don Quixote and Sancho discover that the sound that had scared them during the previous night is produced by fulling mills, Sancho begins to laugh aloud, angering don Quixote.
The fulling mills have not been represented.
Cruikshank's caricature style is very remarkable; notice the expressions of both figures.
