Signature: (upper left): In the Yiwei year of the Jiajing reign  on a day of the Little Cold season [ca. January 6–20] Xuanjin dropped by to pay a call and produced this paper, pressing me for a painting by my clumsy brush. At that time I had been ill and had long neglected brush and inkstone. In a disorderly way I daubed and rubbed; surely one must fine it awful. May Xuanmin not be offended with my soiling his beautiful paper. Inscribed by Ju Jie.
