Front of sheet has sketch of a small child in a tunic. Back of sheet shows sketch of a sleeping dog. This drawing has previously been attributed to Gerald Handerson Thayer but attribution is uncertain. Pencil note running alongside sketch reads "Miss Gladys Thay[er]", but it is unclear whether this suggests that Gladys is the artist or the subject.
