James E. Buttersworth, signed. The white cliffs of Dover provide a backdrop for a busy shipping scene in the English Channel. An American sloop yacht is reaching along past a British ship of the line, which is on the opposite course, sailing downwind, and to the right is another American yacht. In the background, a steam tug tows a sailing vessel. The warship looks to be hauling up her topgallants, (above the topsails, which are set), taking advantage of a fine, fair breeze.
