Drawing. The sky is blank, and mostly obscured by the tops of six large trees growing from the foreground--midground. The background is provided by the outlines of a mix of leafy trees with groups of palms in the centre; this screen breaks in the region of the palms to show a low fence in the distance, and allow a glimpse of open water to the horizon. The background is terminated across the whole picture by a stockade fence. A large arched gateway in the centre left of the fence frames a wide roadway, which heads diagonally into the bottom left-hand corner of the picture. This roadway is lined on the left by shrubs, halfway along which the leftmost of the six large trees rises. To the right of the road in the foreground a clump of shrubby plants is growing, to the right of which turkeys are scavenging. Behind and to right of the birds, four of six large trees form a loose group, with a pair of mules, ponies or donkeys to their right, the one on the left facing right, the other facing away from the viewer. These animals are standing to the left of the foot of the sixth tree. The ground across the whole picture in front of the stockade is roughly even. The sun is shining from the right, perpendicular to the line of sight.
A fenced enclosure not far behind the shore, with vegetation and farm animals.
