Promissory Notes like this issued by the State of Connecticut help 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 was issued to Colonel Samuel Wyllys. Samuel Wyllys was a Paytable member and was promoted to General and led a regiment in the siege of Boston and Fort Wyllys was named in his honor. The note was signed by Paytable member Oliver Wolcott Jr. Oliver Wolcott Jr. was the son of Oliver Wolcott who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He became a Paytable member in 1782 and named Comptroller in 1788. In 1795 he became President George Washington's Secretary of the Treasury succeeding Alexander Hamilton.
