- Curator's comments
This is part of a collection of twenty-nine drawings by G A Robinson held by the British Museum, seven of which are on the opposite side of another drawing.
Comment from National Museum of Australia curator, Dr Ian Coates, 2011:
The annotation may refer to the 'Pieman River', a river in northwest Tasmania, a locality to which G A Robinson travelled, as described in N J B Plomley (ed) 1966 'Friendly Mission: The Tasmanian journals and papers of George Augustus Robinson 1829-1834'.

- This was probably part of the collection of artworks and ethnographic objects which Joseph Barnard Davis (q.v.) acquired from Robinson's widow in the 1860s, and which AW Franks (q.v.) later purchased for the British Museum at the auction sale of Davis's estate in 1883.
