One scene with two sweethearts walking in moonlight near wheat fields, with sheafs of wheat at one side. Another scene of tavern interior, crescent moon showing through windows and tall wooden clock against stone wall. Three tipplers are at a round wooden table covered with mugs, pitchers, funnel, pipe and a candle. Bottles are on the floor at the side. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/11/94)
