The faint sketch on this page is of Kelso Bridge from the south-west opposite Kelso to the south. It is closely related to the sketch on folio 19 verso (D25962; CCLXVII 19a) which shows the bridge in more detail. The structure seen through the trees to the left is part of the bridge and can be seen in Turner’s watercolour, Kelso circa 1832 (whereabouts unknown),1 engraved for volume 3 of Sir Walter Scott’s Poetical Works.
At the right of the page is a continuation of a sketch of Haddington Church on folio 22 (D25966; CCLXVII 22).
