A secret letter sent to General George Washington by one of his most talented spies. Abraham Woodhull was a young farmer living near New York City who was able to get close to the British troops and Loyalists occupying the area under the guise of selling his crops to them. He was recruited to the revolutionary cause by a childhood friend named Benjamin Tallmadge. Woodhull began writing letters to General Washington using the alias Samuel Culper.

Woodhull knew that if he were caught by the British, he would almost assuredly be executed, as Nathan Hale had been in 1776. He took every effort to ensure his work wouldn't be discovered by the enemy.  One method of disguising communications at the time was the use of invisible ink, which could be made from milk, lemon juice, and other commonly found liquids. Only when held close to the heat of a candle, the invisible ink would reveal itself. 

This mug showcases an exerpt from the letter General Washington received on April 12th, 1779. This letter and many others sent by Woodhull is now in the archives of the Library of Congress. It reads: “…Rest assured that I endevour to collect and convey the most accurate and explicit intelligence that I possibly can; and hope it may be of some service toward alleviating the misery of our distressed Country, nothing but that could have induced me to undertake it.”

Now you can read the same hidden message that was sent to George Washington himself with this color-changing mug. Perfect for your morning coffee. But not, under any circumstances, for the consumption of British tea.
