Signer of the Declaration of Independence from New Hampshire (1730–1785), who commanded a brigade of New Hampshire militia at Saratoga in 1777, and then the following year at Rhode Island. Revolutionary War–dated manuscript DS, signed “Wm. Whipple,” one page, 7.75 x 3.75, September 19, 1776. Pay order issued by Governor Meshech Weare to Governor’s Councilman Nicholas Gilman, in full: “Pursuant to a vote of Council & Assembly pay Colo. William Whipple One Hundred & Ninety Pounds to pay the Travel of the men raised in his Reg’t & the Independ’t Companies under Colo. Sherburbe & Landgon.” Signed by Weare, “M. Weare,” and floridly endorsed on the reverse by Whipple. In very good to fine condition, with a piece of archival tape along the left edge, and a central cancellation hole filled in with a paper backing. Whipple is among the scarcest signers, and this is a superior example—it boasts both the sought-after 1776 date and excellent content connected to the revolutionary cause.
