Notes:  The engraving was printed both on paper and on satin.  The designer of the print, Charles Buxton, a New York physician, mailed two copies of the satin impression to George Washington on 27 April 1799, and Washington responded on 30 May 1799: "Was not the late President of the United States a conspicuous character in the Piece I might say more than would now become me of the fruitfulness of the Design."  Subsequently, in 1819, the image was reproduced in Glasgow, Scotland, on a printed cotton textile.
