|Commentary||Well-known scene since Vanderbank (London: Tonson, 1738), whose composition was almost copied here.
The page, knelt before Teresa Panza (with a tow ball that she had been spinning), hands Sancho's letter to her.
Also Sanchica, barefoot accurate to Cervantes' text.
Drawing and engraving are excellent (see Teresa and the page's faces).
|Notes||1 - Copied after Smirke's illustration (London: Cadell & Davies, 1818).
2 – Wrongly-placed in chapter 41:2.
