A portrait of a middle-aged man, with dark balding hair. He wears a dark green waistcoat with gold buttons, a coat of the same material, and a white large collared shirt. In his right hand he holds a long thin stick, like a cane. On either side are young boys in stove hats; some hold onto the man's arms. The children at the back wave their hats in the air. To the right of the man is a boy with a peaked cap and a red kerchief.
