Picture notes NZ Times 13 Oct 1902 p2 [NZAFA] " An ambitious scheme is very faithfully carried out in "Leading In", which shows a hayfield with the light of the setting sun throwing strong shadows across the field from the haycocks. The light is admirably managed in this picture, which is notable for its character. The figures in the centre of the field, however, might have been stronger." Triad v10 n9 p11, 1 Dec 1902 "a good study of a wild evening sky"
