    Description

    [Benedict Arnold]. Captain Benedict Arnold III Account Sheet Signed "Bendt Arnold." Three integral pages, 6.25" x 8.25", n.p. [Connecticut], n.d. [circa 1754]. Capt. Arnold (1683-1761), the father of Revolutionary War General Benedict Arnold V, here acknowledges monies owed to Jonathan Trumble (the future governor of Connecticut, who changed the original spelling of his name to Trumbull later in life) on an account for goods spanning the years 1750 through 1754. The entire account is itemized, including a credit of £1150:9:2 owed to Arnold by Trumble. Arnold signs on January 31, 1752, that the account has been settled for £1171:0:8. Weakened folds are showing some separation and loss of paper at the intersections. Some of the folds have been archivally repaired.

    Jonathan Trumbull Sr. was a merchant and politician who became the colonial governor of Connecticut in 1769 and the governor of the new state of Connecticut throughout the war.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
