While serving as the captain of a Massachusetts company during the French and Indian War, Jotham Gay was involved in a British invasion of Nova Scotia. He settled there and later served as a member of the Nova Scotian House of Assembly during the 1770s. This document is on toned paper with sturdy folds and thin mounting remnants along the edge on verso; fine condition.
