Charles Lee Manuscript Document Signed "Charles Lee," one page, 8" x 4.75". Philadelphia, April 12, 1779. In full, "I have this Day sold to Messr Jeremiah Warden & Comy a Sett of Exchange for one hundred Pounds Sterlg drawn by me on Mr. Jonathan Gaston London at thirty Days sight for which I promise in Case of a Protest to repay them with Interest and Charges of Protest by a good and sufficient Bill on London when demanded and not otherwise." On verso is an endorsement by Jeremiah Warden & Company dated October 19, 1779. This financial document was signed by Lee exactly eight months after being court-martialed in August 1778 for disobeying General Washington's orders to attack during the the Battle of Monmouth. Lee continued to openly criticize Washington and was dismissed from the army on January 10, 1780. The document bears folds and is slightly nicked at edges. Overall, it's in fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
