Lot of 2 items, a Handwritten Military Certificate and a matching Pay-Table Receipt, both regarding payment owed to Joseph Johnson, who served in the 2nd Connecticut Regiment from January 1st, 1781 to December 10th, 1781. The handwritten military document certifies that Joseph Johnson did belong to the Connecticut Regiment, and is signed by Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Johnson, Fine condition with ink stains and toning; the Pay-Table Receipt is mostly type-set in black with some black handwriting, issued October 28th, 1783 for the sum of 17 Pounds, 10 Shillings & 12 Shillings owed to Joseph Johnson's Estate, signed by William Moseley at center bottom, Fine condition with pronounced fold lines. Promissory Notes like this were issued by the State of Connecticut to help finance the Revolutionary War. Military finances in the state of Connecticut were managed by the Pay-Table which was also known as the Committee of Four during the Revolutionary War. William Moseley (1755-1824) later would serve in the Connecticut state senate. He was also the Director of the Hartford National Bank from 1797 to 1815. Jonathan Johnson was a Lieutenant Colonel during the Revolutionary War, and corresponded with George Washington during the ongoing conflict.
