A / Prospect on the River Wie, / In MONSAL-DALE / Two Miles North-West of Bakewell. [graphic] T. Smith Pinx et del ; Vivares sculp. March 25 1743.

No. 6; titled on an elaborate cartouche. View of a broad waterfall in a river which curves into the foreground between steep wooded banks, the sun strikes the right bank, where cattle are roaming and two men are fishing in the turbulent waters in the foreground, one reaching out to take a fish from a boy to use as bait, another man fishes from the opposite bank in the distance; two horses and a man walk on a mountain path in the far distance and a couple stroll on the slope below them. According to Smith "HERE the WIE flows between a charming variety of Rocks and Woods: It runs smoothly to the Brink of the Cataract, were 'tis 71 Feet wide, and falls 7 Feet perpendicular. The River abounds with trout, Grayling, &c. This whole VIEW belongs to his Grace the Duke of Devonshire, to whom it is humbly inscrb'd by his Grace's, / Dutiful and Obedient Servant, T.S" [see Maps K.Top.11.19.a].
