Description

    Declaration Signers Abraham Clark and John Hart Document Signed Confirming Attendance to the Provincial Congress Manuscript D.S. "Abra: Clark" and "John Hart", 1 p., 7.5" x 5.5", March 2, 1776, addressed to the Treasurers of the Provincial Congress and certifying "that Caleb Camp hath attended as a Deputy in Provintial Congress in New jersey [sic], sixty three days in this and a siting [sic] at Trenton in October last for which he is intended to receive Nineteen pounds twelve shillings..." Dated in Clark's hand "Mar 2, 1776" directly above his signature. On the verso, the docket has been signed by Silas Condict, New Jersey member of the Continental Congress and by Jesse Hand. Beneath their docket is an ADS by Camp acknowledging the receipt of the money. The document has been professionally strengthened on verso at right margin affecting a single word, otherwise very clean with bold ink. A nice grouping of important signatures on a document giving evidence of the transition of government from colonial legislative assemblies to independent state legislatures and gives evidence of the dawning realization that the goal of the colonies was to seek complete independence from Britain. Ex: Sang Collection.
