A Peculiar Elegance by Publius-Reporter A Peculiar Elegance by Publius-Reporter
“There was something singularly interesting in the character and fortunes of André. To an excellent understanding, well improved by education and travel, he united a peculiar elegance of mind and manners, and the advantage of a pleasing person. ’t is said he possessed a pretty taste for the fine arts, and had himself attained some proficiency in poetry, music, and painting. His knowledge appeared without ostentation, and embellished by a diffidence that rarely accompanies so many talents and accomplishments: which left you to suppose more than appeared. His sentiments were elevated, and inspired esteem: they had a softness that conciliated affection. His elocution was handsome; his address easy, polite, and insinuating.”

- Alexander Hamilton to John Laurens, October 1780

Hamilton developed a pretty massive crush on John André

My dearest friend, if you think THIS is the sign of a crush....you simply MUST read even the FIRST letter to Laurens. XD

I'ts a pretty good book so far! XD

And this piece of art is rather well done! I wonder if John Andre ever figured it out that Hamilton had a "pretty massive crush" on him... XD

The look on Andre's face says he's suspicious, and is kind of holding the fact above Alexander's head.
