Description

    King George III Royal Commission Signed 16.75" x 11.5", two pages (front and verso), partially printed, June 19, 1782, St. James, London. A commission for Delap Halliday, Esq. as "Captain that Independent Company of Foot whereof Dugald Campbell, Esq., was late Captain". Boldly signed in the upper left corner "George R". Toned at edges and folds, else near fine.

    Also signed by the Prime Minister, Earl of Shelburne. The main issue for the Shelburne's administration was securing peace with the American colonists. Following sustained efforts by Shelburne, a provisional peace treaty was signed in Paris, but rejected in the House of Commons by a small majority on February 22 1783. Not having cultivated a supporting party in the Commons and with declining support from the King, he had to tender his resignation, which was accepted on March 26 1783.
