This sketch came to the society mounted in an album of sketches and engravings by Thomas S. Cummings and various other nineteenth-century American artists. The subject was originally identified as the Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834); however, the drawing is clearly copied from Henry Inman's portrait of Colonel Fish and probably dates from the period of Inman's and Cummings's partnership.
