    British Evacuation Manuscript Document Signed "Alured Clarke", one page, 8" x 12.75, Staten Island, December 3, 1783. An exciting and rare manuscript penned on American soil after Manhattan's evacuation and just one day before Washington's farewell to the Army! Signed by Brigadier General Clarke, who would later command the King's troops in India. This routine piece of accounting is made special by its historical context and reads in part: "...the Situation of Public Business being such upon the removal of the Troops from New York as to render it impossible for him to obtain general Vouchers from every Regiment Corps and Department in that regular Manner he has heretofore done." Three small edge splits on smoothed folds, else aged as expected and fine condition.
