Made with the sketchbook turned vertically, the drawings on this page display scenes on the banks of the River Medway as identified by Finberg.1 Composed close to the top edge of the sheet, the topmost sketch shows a stone building at left, somewhat like a keep in its sturdy appearance. Its river-facing wall is marked with thin slivers of window. Additional buildings mark the distant hillside behind, and shore at right. The handling is neat and precise, the pencil sharpened to a fine point.
The second view is composed as a very slender band which once again stretches across the full width of the page. A small boat floats at far right, and additional vessels delineated as a vague group populate the scene more broadly.
