This miniature portrait is tragically connected with the two previous miniature portraits, those of Aaron Burr and Theodosia Burr Alston. It is inscribed on the reverse "Elizabeth Scott Nicoll 1818 - Watercolor by Inman, AH". The AH appears to be the initials of Alexander Hamilton III, who wrote the inscription. The note attributes the miniature to Henry Inman (1801-1846).
On Nov 15, 1842, Elizabeth Scott Nicoll married Alexander Church Hamilton III (1816-1889). He was the grandson of Alexander Hamilton I, who had been the first Secretary of the Treasury and had been killed by Aaron Burr in a duel in 1804.
The miniature was acquired together with the photograph shown, which is inscribed on the reverse "Alexander van Cortland Hamilton, January 7, 1915 age 3 mos. 10 days". He is believed to be a third great-grandchild of Alexander Hamilton I". 958
