Description

    Daniel Boone Autograph Letter Signed with Financial Content A.L.S. "Daniel Boone", 1 p., 8" x 4.5", n.p., February 3, 1786, reading in full: "Sir, as Capt Platt hath left his Store house and all other conserns [sic] in my hands in order to have the cash I will oblige my Self to pay the Cash at the time the Note specifies or before if [previous word is edited out] Witness my hand this 3d Day of february 1786 Daniel Boone". Boone had served as a militia officer during the Revolutionary War, primarily in Kentucky where the war was fought between the colonial settlers and American Indians allied with the British. After the close of the war, Boone remained in Kentucky and worked as a surveyor and merchant. His unsuccessful forays into land speculation resulted in ever growing debt, and likely this letter is an attempt to fend off his creditors. The letter has been professionally mended at folds, with light soiling and toning; however, ink remains quite bold and signature very attractive.
