DescriptionZebulon Pike Document Signed, "Zebu. Pike". Two page, front and verso, 7.5" x 4.5", April 16, 1798, Fort Massac [Illinois]. The document is a receipt for the payment of five dollars to a hewer and scorer of wood. Some chipping at edges, weakness at folds, and ink burns, else near very good. Included is a photographic copy of an engraving of Pike.
Interestingly, Pike signed the receipt as "Captain Commanding", no doubt a temporary rank for the nineteen-year-old who would not receive a commission as an ensign until the following year.
