A panoramic view of Arowhenua (near Temuka, South Canterbury) running along half of the page, with Arowhenua Bush in the distance and the Opihi River. On the other half of the page is Mantell's diary for 8 and 9 October 1848, interrupted with a drawing of a utensil similar to an abbreviated watering can, with part of a pa in the background (Waiteruati or Te Wai a te Rua Ti Pa). Mantell jokingly suggests that the utensil is a portable toilet.
