Turner’s inscription reads:
1 Pr of Stockings
This must be a list of clothes to take on a trip. Either this was to be a short one or Turner expected laundry services to be available. Further items including painting materials are listed on folio 5 verso of the sketchbook (D06862; Turner Bequest CIV 4a).
