    How would you like to have been the artist to have painted the portraits of, and therefore presumably met face-to-face and conversed at length with, the likes of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson?

      He must have had such an interesting life, as he was fully a witness of those extraordinary moments in American history. He was a soldier during the Revolutionary War, personal assistant to George Washington, he was arrested and imprisoned in London as a spy, he was secretary to John Jay, a close friend of Thomas Jefferson…

        As you’ve probably realized from some of my posts, apart from being interested in art and being zany in general, I am a history buff. Two and a half reasons for being so into your blog, Suzay!
