Historical context
In 1814 Constable exhibited at the Royal Academy 'Landscape: Ploughing scene in Suffolk' (see note on No. 122); also 'Landscape: the ferry', probably the painting 'Mill Stream' now in the Ipswich Museum. He visited the Revd. Mr. Driffield at Feering in June (see Nos. 124-128) and spent much of the rest of the year in Suffolk.
