Sketches numbered 22 and 23 in a sketchbook. The upper sketch, Capsize of a boat on the bar, Grey River looks out to sea from the land, with a small boat capsizing in the waves at the bar of the Grey River. Three or four people on board can be seen falling into the water. In the background, standing out to sea, are two larger vessels. The lower drawing 'Workin[g] the takement' shows goldminers at work. Two men under a tent fly are working with a gold cradle, one raking through shingle in the top section of the cradle, one straining water from a ladle to one side; stream water is flowing through the lower part of the cradle. Another man pushes a wheelbarrow full of rocks from a mine entrance round a track in the background. A fourth man may be digging near the mine entrance.
