Description
 
Promissory Notes like this issued by the State of Connecticut helped to finance the Revolutionary War. Military finances in the state of Connecticut were managed by the Pay-Table which was also known as the Committee of Four during the Revolutionary War.

This Pay Table Note features the signature (vertically) of General Jedidiah Huntington. Huntington was a General appointed at the personal request of George Washington of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Huntington was a graduate of Harvard and Yale. After the war he was pay-table member and was appointed to Treasurer in 1789.

The note was issued to Captain Nathaniel Slason (1745-1835, born in Stamford, CT) in 1782. This note was signed by Pay-Table members Fenn Wadsworth, William Moseley and General J Huntington vertically. Fenn Wadsworth was a Brigade Major serving General James Wadsworth and served in many battles until poor health required him to serve in the Connecticut Government and was a Pay-Table member. Moseley would later serve in the State Senate (1822-1824). Reverse is endorsed Capt. Nathaniel Slason.

John Lawrence as Treasurer.

This Pay Table Note is presented in a gorgeous high quality acrylic display that weights over 1.5 lbs. Magnetically held together, the display is easy to open if you want to inspect your document. Perfect for a desktop or bookshelf display.
