With 12" x 7.5" leaf addressed by Hazen to "Colonel Timothy Bidle/at Haverhill on Connecticut/River at/Coos" In part, "I made a journey myself to New York. I found Mr. Apthrop to be well inclined to what we could wish at the same time he was diffident of his own judgement of the real value of the premises...he consult with his friend Mr Kelley the great land jobber on the matter...Mrs. Hazen is gone into Canada..." An officer in the French and Indian War, Moses Hazen was living in Canada at the start of the Revolutionary War and, in 1775, was arrested by both the Americans and the British as a spy. In 1776, he received a colonel's commission in the Continental Army and fought at Brandywine and Germantown. Promoted to Brigadier General in 1781, Hazen commanded a brigade under Lafayette during the Battle of Yorktown. Both the letter and the address leaf are lightly soiled with uneven toning folds, with slight separation at one fold on the address leaf. Fine condition.

    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.
