1 pg. doc., February 1, 1789, being a Treasury Office bond purchase receipt for 23 pounds 11 shillings from the State of Connecticut signed by Major General Jedediah Huntington (1743-1818). The receipt is made out to George Griffen (1734-1814) of East Haddam and promises to later pay Griffen interest on this amount in "Spanish Milled Dollars" (or other gold or silver coins equivalent). Huntington signs this receipt as Treasurer of Connecticut. Jedediah was the son of Jabez Huntington, who was a Major General of Militia from 1776 until his death in 1786. Jedediah graduated Harvard in 1763. He was an active Son of Liberty, and a member of the Committee of Correspondence that was established at a Norwich in June, 1774. He raised a regiment in which he was made Captain and joined the army at Cambridge on April 26, 1775 following the Lexington alarm. He later aided in repulsing the British at Danbury in April, 1776. He was made Brigadier-General in May, 1777. He guarded the Hudson in 1778. He served in the court-martial that tried General Charles Lee for misconduct in 1778, and sat on the court that tried British Major John Andre, who was aiding Benedict Arnold in his traitorous plan to hand West Point over to the British. Andre was hung. Jedidiah was brevetted Major-General at the war's end. Afterwards, he served in various public capacities, including Treasurer of Connecticut, and was a delegate to the convention that adopted the U.S. Constitution. In 1789, after having been sworn in as the first President, Washington appointed him Collector of Customs at New London. Jedediah's father-in-law was Governor Jonathan Trumbull. Jedediah was also one of the organizations of the Society of the Cincinnati. The document has been lightly laid to another sheet but can be removed o/w near mint condition. Buyer pays $2.25 shipping.
