A short historical note precedes the easy to read story about what might have happened during one of the missions of a 14 year old Quaker boy whose Philadelphia family participated in coding and decoding as well as sending and receiving secret messages to General George Washington. Each page spread is illustrated with watercolor paintings, some in full color. (Ages 5-11)
