    Description

    George Washington Autograph Docket on Christmas Beer Receipt. One page, 6.25" x 2.75", December 22, 1772. The beer was ordered and delivered on the same day. Washington has written three lines on verso docketing this receipt: "Wales N. 82/ £8.010/ 22nd Decr [?] 1772". Following this is a handwritten block letter "W", very possibly written by Colonel Washington. Washington's holograph is tightly trimmed and bears dampstaining. Near very good.
