'Monarch' at Sheerness from the 'Trafalgar' 29 January 1851
Inscribed top left, 'Monarch. Sheerness / Jany 29th 51 / from Stern Port Trafalgar'. The view is up the Medway towards Chatham, from the Sheerness side, showing 'Monarch' from off the port bow, with her topmasts struck down. Though she carries both main and topmast yards she is on harbour service, without her running rigging; she flies the white ensign. The river curves to the right beyond the ship, to whose left in the distance is the smoke of a steamer, probably a naval picket vessel if their presense in Mends's other Sheerness sketches is a guide. A stiff breeze is blowing roughly from the east and the choppy river is of an authentically muddy colour.
