1806. CORNWALLIS (Lord), Trumbull's picture of.—

The painting lately executed
by Colonel Trumbull, I have never seen,
but as far back as the days of Horace at least,
we are told that “pictoribus atque poetis;
Quidlibet audendi semper fuit æqua potestas.”
He has exercised this licentia pictoris in like
manner in the surrender of Yorktown, where
he has placed Lord Cornwallis at the head of
the surrender although it is well known that he
was excused by General Washington from appearing.—
To Samuel A. Wells. Ford ed., x, 133.
(M. 1819)
