    Description

    Connecticut French and Indian War Pay Affidavit. Manuscript Document Signed "James Grant", one page, 8" x 9.25", Norwich, Connecticut, January 5, 1757. The body reads: "James Grant Gentleman of Norwich in the County of New London Maketh Oath that he was not from the 25th of June to the 24th of Decr 1756 any other place or employment Circle of Military under His Majesty. Besides his allowance of Half Pay as a reduced Leuitenant [sic] Honorable Sir William Peppernells [sic] Regiment of Foot...". Small marginal split along the upper edge, expected light aging. Remarkably sound and in fine condition. Grant's regiment endured a harsh campaign against the French in 1755/56, finally surrendering to the French commanded by Montcalm. A scarce and particularly splendid pre-Revolutionary military document.
