A smalschip and a despatch vessel with the Dutch fleet in light airs

On the left is a port (lee) bow view of a smalschip in a light breeze, with her jib boomed out to windward. Further to the left is a bow view of a ship at anchor with a flag at her mizzen and a pendant at the fore. A barge is in the right foreground, with land in the distance.

Robinson has dated the drawing very approximately on the subject and style.
