A RYS Castle, Cowes letterhead notes in manuscript regarding the signal flags of the cutter yacht 'Trinity' in the note's accompanying lithograph (CC-F-0137) by an unknown artist. The note appears to be an attempt to identify the yacht in the lithograph. The handwriting suggests that the collector Arthur H. Clark did not write the note.
