Description

    Six New York City Legal Documents, "Richard Varick" signed, likely by clerk Robert Benson, as "Mayor of the said City" ca. 1792, partially printed, 13" x 4". All documents contain additional endorsements; with blind embossed paper seals on each. All with irregular margins; folds, some of which have separations. Good condition.

    More Information:

    These documents command the New York City sheriff to bring the accused "before the Mayor, Recorder and Aldermen of the City of New York, at the next Court of Common Pleas called the Mayor's Court." Accusations of the six individuals include mostly "trespass, assault and battery." Revolutionary War veteran Richard Varick (1753-1831) served New York City in many different capacities, including as its mayor from 1791 through 1801. During the war, he was appointed inspector general at West Point, where he served under Benedict Arnold. Following Arnold's traitorous move, Varick was arrested. He was soon cleared of any traitorous accusations and finished the war as a private secretary to George Washington.
