Summary: "This drawing is by Major John Andre of the British Army, when a prisoner, and living in my Father's family in Lancaster, during the war of the Revolution. I was at that time a small boy, but well remember Andre's bland manners, sporting with us children as if one of us. To my brother John he was more especially attached from a nearer approach of age, & a congeniality of genius & taste. I often played marbles & other boyish games with the Major. "I cannot remember what he said the drawings represented, but think it the place of the author's birth, or some place at which he had resided: but I have carefully preserved the relic, in memory of the Artist, & of my affection for that gifted and deceived, that noble minded generous man. --Thomas P. Cope, Phila. 1851"
