The Duke of Wellington [?], center, in military dress stands on high ground and writes in a notebook. It is night, and he is illuminated by the light of a bright fire tended by a young person at left. At right, a man holding a donkey's bridle in his left hand and a piece of cloth or paper in his right looks up at him. There are smoke and flames and smoke amidst the buildings in the background.
