    Description

    [Peter Faneuil]. 1726 Payment Voucher Featuring the Signatures of Several Prominent Boston Merchants. One page, recto and verso, 3" x 7.5", Boston; August 20 to September 21, 1726.

    This document, a voucher for payments received of Henry Deering (alternately spelled "Dering" and "Dearing"), features the signatures of some of Boston's most prominent merchants, most notably Peter Faneuil (1700-1743). Faneuil is probably best known for his gift to the city of Boston of a large market building known as Faneuil Hall. The hall was a vital civic center and hosted many pre-Revolution meetings. The document is also signed by Hugh Vans (circa 1699-1763), a merchant and author of several pamphlets on monetary topics, including "An Inquiry into the Nature and Uses of Money"; and Thomas Cushing, a leading member of the Old South Church and a selectman. It is also signed by Benjamin Atkinson, William Franklyn, Pyam Blowers, James King, Anne Bernard, James Allen.

    Condition: Gently toned.
