Partially printed War-date Endorsed Document Signed
1782·State of Connecticut
by PHELPS, Noah (1740 - 1809)
State of Connecticut, 1782. unbound. 1 page, State of Connecticut, Pay-Table Office, March 9th 1782 -- a payment of "Two Pounds ten shillings...granted in May last, exclusive of that Part payable in State Bills, and charge the State." Signed by Committee men and Revolutionary War patriots William Mosley and Finn Wadsworth, of which the document is completely in his hand. Signed "Noah Phelps, Colonel" on the back. Partial tearing along the folds, but still in very good(+) condition. Revolutionary War captain, spy, and later Major General of the Militia. He is best remembered for casually sneaking into Fort Ticonderoga disguised as a peddler needing a shave and viewing first-hand the weaknesses the British would have in defending the fort. He reported his findings to General Ethan Allen and later participated in the dawn raid that resulted in the bloodless taking of the fort.
