Commentary Original scene.
Returning to their village, don Quixote and Sancho find one hare chased by greyhounds; don Quixote interprets it as a bad omen about Dulcinea and Sancho saves the hare to break the bad omen; "presupongamos que esta liebre es Dulcinea del Toboso, y estos galgos que la persiguen son los malandrines encantadores que la transformaron en una labradora: ella huye, yo la cojo, y la pongo en poder de vuesa merced que la tiene en sus brazos y la regala" (73:2).
In the foreground, two boys argue about a cage with crickets.
From the background, the hunters arrive searching their hare.
Sancho's donkey with the clothes from Altisidora's adventure.
As a whole, the plate is quite good. 
Notes 1 – Copy in a reduced size after Gregorio Ferro’s illustration for Madrid: Ibarra, 1780.
2 - Despite its reference "Tom. 7 Pag. 328." (chapter 69:2), it has been well-placed in chapter 73:2.
