Verso:
There is a slight sketch. The pencil has been drawn in a loose loop that may represent a fold of hills, perhaps those opposite Llangollen as drawn on the folio 89 recto opposite (D01311; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 57); but it is not possible to identify precisely the intention of this slight mark. The page is stamped in brown ink with the usual Turner Bequest monogram.
