This is an incredible Revolutionary War–dated manuscript DS, signed “Sam’l B. Webb Col. Com’d Lt Infty,” one page, 9.25 x 5, November 9, 1782. Document submitted to the committee of pay table, state of Connecticut. In part: “This may certify that Jonathan Butler served in my Regiment the year 1780 at the end of said year he was discharged.” Includes the corresponding partly-printed receipt signed by Butler, “Jonathan Butler,” dated December 19, 1782, in part: “Received, of Pay-Table-Committee, their Order on the Treasurer of this State, to secure the Payment of Twenty five pounds four shillings and five pence.” Revolutionary War general (1753–1807) who commanded a company of light infantry and took part in the
Battle of Bunker Hill before serving under Israel Putnam and George Washington. This would be a fantastic addition to your Revolutionary War collection. Toned intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), otherwise fine condition. Certificate of authenticity is included.
