    Timothy Pickering Receipt for Restitution Signed "Tim: Pickering." One partially-printed page, 6" x 7" (width varies), n. p., January 1, 1782. Pickering, as quartermaster general for the Continental Army, here certifies that "there is due from the United States to Richard Southard the Sum of Thirty two pounds For Damage done in Meadow by public Horses - 8 Tons of Hay . . . in August 1781."

In 1780, he was made quartermaster general of the army by the Continental Congress and served in that capacity until 1785.
