Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 27
Washington, 1827. The peace of 1783 had accomplished the great object of the American Revolution; . . . After taking affectionate leave of his old comrades, at New York, accompanied by only two of them, Col. Benjamion Walker and Col. Humphreys, aids-du-camp, he proceeded to Annapolis, where Congress, the very shadow of a government, were then sitting, and then resigned his commission into the hands of twenty-three powerless men, divested himself of all authority, and so retired to private life. . . .
