Description

    Benedict Arnold Autograph Document Signed A receipt for eleven pounds, one shilling and ninepence "Received... of Colin Campbell Esqr.... Currency being in full of my Debt (exclusive of the Costs ) due to the above Action", signed "B. Arnold", 8" x 3.25", St. John, January 26, 1790. Before his famous act of treason, Benedict Arnold was one of Washington's most able generals and the genius behind Gate's celebrated victory over Burgoyne at Saratoga in 1777. After he defected to the British Army in 1781, Arnold received a general's commission, but little else. He left for England when the British evacuated New York at the end of the Revolutionary War. He spent a period in St. John's, New Brunswick, 1787-91, establishing a mercantile business with his sons Richard and Henry. Very bright and clean with rich, dark ink. Nicely framed with a portrait of Arnold and gilt molding. A fine, rare item. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
