Like preceding sketches, this may be a view on the wooded banks of the St Germans or Lynher River. A sailing boat is beached on the left, and there appear to be at least three horses, possibly with figures indicated between the two towards the right. For other views on and around the river, see under folio 27 verso (D09700).
Technical notes:
There is some brown staining down the left-hand edge.
