Drawing depicts four English settlers arriving in Maryland while three Native Americans look on. The settlers plant a St. George's Cross flag in the ground, the national flag of England during the 16th century. Three ships, two of which are probably the Ark and the Dove, are in the background. Father Andrew White may be among the settlers, as he was among a group of 200 settlers that arrived to the colony in 1634.
