PENNSYLVANIA REVOLUTION ITEM 
Partially printed pay order

Partially printed pay order authorizing the sum of £31.16.6 for Captain John Davis as interest on his depreciation certificate, probably as part of his wartime compensation. Signed on the reverse "Capt. John Davis." Davis saw a great deal of action during the war, and a portion of his diary was published in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 1, Number 1, July 1893. A great piece of Revolutionary history. $275.00


PENNSYLVANIA REVOLUTION ITEM 
Revolutionary War Pay Order

Revolutionary War Pay Order issued to Captain George Bush of the 11th Regiment of the Pennsylvania Line in the amount of three pounds. The amount is "one year's interest on his depreciation certificate, due the tenth of April, 1785." The document is signed by John Nicholson and James Irvine. On the reverse is the autograph endorsement of Captain Bush.
John Nicholson (d. 1800) was an American Revolutionary War financier and associate of Robert Morris whom he joined in debtor's prison in 1800. The career of John Nicholson was very similar to that of Robert Morris. Both rendered invaluable financial assistance during the Revolution, both did much to develop and settle the new territories and both were finally broken by being too confident about the rapid growth of the economy. James Irvine (1735-1819) was an American Revolutionary War general and vice-president of Pennsylvania (1784-1785.) $495.00
