A European man, probably Earle himself, being led down a steep path by a Maori with a mere on his wrist and a taiaha over his shoulder and gesturing towards the beachside settlement of Kororareka (Russell) in the background. A second Maori man is behind Earle, carrying his baggage with a gourd balanced atop the load. There is a ship in the bay, two canoes being rowed into shore, other canoes pulled up on the beach, and European houses on the flat land at the water's edge. Several whare, a storage platform and felled tree trunks to the right on the hill. A cabbage tree and another tall tree frame the view on the left.
