George Washington's Aides-de-Camp Group of six documents signed by Revolutionary War officers, who notably served as aides to General Washington during the War. Includes:
    Richard Cary ALS, one page, 8" x 12", Cooperstown, May, 19, 1804, addressed to Charles and George Webster, his creditors. Cary is pressed to repay a debt and pleads for more time: "I now intreat of you as a particular favor, that you will not crowd me at present... I have as much as I can bear... there is no danger of your losing your debt..." Archival mending to verso, large chip likely from opening of wax seal which has been restored, and a small hole resulting from ink burn.
    John Fitzgerald ALS, one page, 8" x 12.5", "Alexa", Dec. 13, 1784, regarding invoicing and payments in bonds. Just good condition with separations at folds, also paper loss at wax seal and at bottom margin.
    Benjamin Walker ALS, 7.5" x 12", Utica, June 10, 1809, transmitting funds. Usual mail folds with minor separations, with a few slight tears at top margin.
    William S. Smith signature as surveyor on the verso of a ship's laden document, 7.5" x 6", circa August 1801. Smith served as Washington's aide from 1781 until the close of the war and later married the only daughter of John Adams.
    William Palfrey DS, 2 pages, 8" x 12.5", Boston, June 14, 1770, regarding payment on property occupied by a relative jointly owned by him and his brother. William Palfrey, Washington's stepson, served as his aide for a brief period from March to April of 1776. He died at sea in 1780, while on a mission to France ordered by Congress. Separation and mail fold has been mended with archival tape.
