Between the two diagrams is a thumbnail landscape composition design labelled ‘Twickenham [?]P[ar]k | Brown Horn [cow] | Splashing the wat[er] | [?]Black [cow] on the Bank’. The design is in Turner’s typically Claudian mode with framing trees at the right, and a centrally positioned sun which is reflected in the water beneath. A ‘Boat’ with ‘Anglers’ is also noted. Sketches of boats on a river on folios 39 verso and 40 may be related (Tate D18586–D18587; Turner Bequest CCXI 39a–40).
