 Item — Box: Oversize 1, Folder: 3
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II

Scope and Contents

Three circular compositional studies with concepts for indoor milling scenes. The most detailed of these resembles Study 6 in composition (with the name sitting to the right of the milling wheel). To the left Leighton has made a list of objects: [illegible], scoop, sack, corn, wheat, mat (or "rat"?). In the upper right someone (not Leighton) has written "original Grist Mill Idea taken from inside" in graphite.
