Catalogue entry

Not noticed by Finberg, this extremely slight, hasty and partial scribble is hard to interpret, but may be a small group of trees, drawn with the sketchbook inverted. Conceivably it is related to the views of the Thames at Richmond on folios 14 and 15 (D05441, D05442), the only other drawings in the book to be made in pencil only.
