James E. Buttersworth, signed. A two-decked American ship of the line is going to windward. On the right is a schooner with a New York Yacht Club burgee at the foremast. She has set every sail she can. To the left is another schooner. Both show the private signals of their owners, too small to be identifiable. The New Jersey highlands are in the background along with the lighthouse at Sandy Hook, where a couple of yachts lie at anchor.
