Fountain

Scope and Content

Simple pen and ink drawing of a fountain, not working. It is made up of a bowl shape, with the head of a bearded man on one side, held by the heads of two figures. Drawn directly on a page of the notebook, with text. The text underneath reads: 'This fountain or this mantle piece / (I care not which it be) / Is beautiful to such a point / it must belong to me'.
