NEW JERSEY JOINS THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR SENDING ITS FIRST TWO BATTALIONS

1

(american revolution.) hancock, john.
Letter Signed, “I am Gentlemen / Your most obed[ien]thum[bl]eServ[an]t / John Hancock / Pres[ident],”

Philadelphia, 12 October 1775

to the members of the Convention of New Jersey, alerting them to the necessity of raising battalions, explaining that the men would be furnished with a shirt and blanket when available and, in a postscript: “By order of Congress I forward you Forty eight Commissions for the Captains & Subaltern Officers in the New Jersey Battalions.” 1 page, tall 4to, with integral blank; silked on verso of letter and blank, horizontal folds with minor loss to few letters of signature, few holes at fold ends expertly repaired with paper, few characters recently inscribed in unknown hand on blank, faint scattered soiling, docketing on blank.

In full: “Some late intelligence laid before Congress seems to render it absolutely necessary for the protection of our liberties & safety of our lives to raise several new battalions, & therefore the Congress have come [to] the enclosed resolutions, which I am ordered to transmit to you. The Congress have the firmest confidence, that from your experienced zeal in this great cause you will exert your utmost endeavours to carry the said resolutions into execution with all possible expedition.
“The Congress have agreed to furnish the men with a hunting shirt not exceeding the value of one dollar & one third of a dollar and a blanket provided these can be procured, but these are not to be made part of the terms of enlistment.”
Published in Extracts from the Journal of Proceedings of the Provincial Congress of New Jersey (Woodbury, NJ, reprinted by order, Sailer, 1835), 53.
In response to the request of Congress, William Alexander (“Lord Stirling”) was commissioned to command the battalion raised in East Jersey (in northeast of colony), and William Maxwell was given command of the West Jersey battalion. Both battalions were ordered to the Hudson River (in preparation for supporting the Canadian campaign) and mustered into the Continental Army in December of 1775.

SIGNED BY TWO OF MOST IMPORTANT FINANCIERS OF REVOLUTION

2

(american revolution.) morris, robert; and haym salomon.
Partly-printed Document Signed, a bill of exchange signed by Morris, “Rob’tMorris, / S[uper]I[ntendent] of Finance,” and with Signature by Haym transferring payee on verso.

Philadelphia, 11 July 1782

The document, in French, requesting that Mr. Grande at the Bank of Paris pay 4,500 livres tournois to Salomon Haym in 60 days. Three other payment transfers signed on verso, including Samuel Inglis, who made the final transfer to Messrs. Bingham, Inglis & Gilmer. 4x10¼ inches; some chipping at edges with minor loss to extreme end of Morris’s holograph title, minor staining at side and lower edges, folds.

When Robert Morris became the first and only U.S. Superintendent of Finance in 1781, the government was nearing bankruptcy and public credit was on the verge of collapse. The Bank of North America, which Morris had helped establish in part to finance the closing chapter of the Revolutionary War, depended upon Morris’s own private fortune and loans from abroad. Haym Salomon (1740-1785), a Jewish Polish-American businessman who had joined the Sons of Liberty in NY and served as paymaster for the French forces in North America during the Revolution, was contracted by Morris to sell the bills of exchange he issued beginning in 1781. By July 12, 1782, Salomon was advertising his services on behalf of the U.S. as “Broker to the Office of Finance,” designating the work he continued until 1784. Although the nation’s economy would not recover for many years, the Bank of North America and other financial reforms Morris had set in motion enabled the fledgling country to endure.

"YOU MUST BE EITHER DAWDLING . . . OR MORALLY OR PHYSICALLY DEAD"

5

Burr, aaron.
Autograph Letter Signed, “A. Burr,” to James Martin,

Albany, 13 January 1799

requesting more frequent communications from him, suggesting a recently vacated house [to investigate the possibility of renting], requesting a draft of a case, discussing the possibility of submitting an application for writ of ne exeat, and reminding him not to consult the brother of one of the parties to the case, with a postscript: “The papers in Ward & Pell are said to be in the hands of R. Livingston.” 1½ pages, 4to, written on recto and verso of sheet with integral address leaf; moderate staining at center, folds.

“You must be either dawdling . . . or morally or physically dead: in any other event I should have heard frequently from you. I venture however a second time to attempt to awaken you from your lethargy or to attract you to town.
“The business of the house . . . –that which Sam Jones used to occupy in Nassau St & one next Door to (South of) Alderman Furman’s in Broad Way deserve your attention.
“With all possible dispatch, prepare and send me a Draft of Bill, John S. Robertson vs Ja’s Scott Smith. You have the agreement & my letter to Dr Robertson of the 28th Ult. . . . Mr. R. seems apprehensive that Smith will elope–if these apprehensions should appear to be well founded, application must be made for a Ne exeat. P.R. Livingston, the Reg’r will tell you our mode . . . . You need not be warned against consulting Tho’s Smith, the brother, on this business.”
In a letter to James Martin dated January 4, 1799, Burr requested that Martin seek out on his own behalf a house in Manhattan that would be suitable for him.
Later that year, Burr founded the Manhattan Company, ostensibly with the purpose of providing water for Manhattan, but operating increasingly over the years as a bank. The company later became the Bank of Manhattan Company, which, in 1955, merged with the Chase National Bank, to form the Chase Manhattan Bank.
