DescriptionRevolutionary War Receipts (3) for Arms Dated July 1776. Includes:
1) A receipt (8.5" x 4") for arms issued during the month of July 1776, including three scabbards for bayonets, two leather belts, one cartridge box, etc. The items were issued over 3 days during the month and the receipt is signed by Israel Seymour. Seymour dates his signature July 13, 1777, but a docket on the verso indicates payment was made in December 1776, so it is possible that Seymour has written the wrong year.
