    Description

    Oliver Wolcott Document Thrice Signed. Two pages, 8" x 6.5", n. p., 1779 and 1780. Wolcott, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and Articles of Confederation and the 19th governor of Connecticut, was serving in the Continental Congress when he signed the verso of a document, dated October 22, 1779, ordering payment of "Eighteen hundred & Thirty eight Pounds four Shillings" charged to the state (presumably Connecticut). Upon payment of the above amount, which was given in three installments on December 3 and 13, 1779, and January 22, 1780, Wolcott wrote a short note of receipt along with his signature, once as "O Wolcott" and twice as "Oliver Wolcott." Folds are toned and the document is unevenly toned throughout.
