This is a wonderful, original document dated 1814, where Lewis Allen, master of the sloop Romeo has sworn an oath to the contents of goods on board. Jedediah Huntington has signed as having heard the oath and allowing Allen to proceed from New London to New York. Verso shows manifest aboard the sloop, signed again by Allen. Document is 8x11, minor edge faults, else in overall very good condition .

Jedediah Huntington (4 August 1743 – 25 September 1818), also known as Jedidiah Huntington, was an American general in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War.

He was born in Norwich, Connecticut, the son of Jabez Huntington (1719–1786). He graduated at Harvard in 1763, joined the American army at Cambridge, became a brigadier general in 1777, and took part in many important engagements until the close of the war, when he was brevetted major general in 1783. He was one of the organizers of the Society of the Cincinnati. He became collector of the port of New London in 1789 and held the office 26 years. In 1778 he was a member of the court-martial that tried Gen. Charles Lee and in 1780 of the one that condemned Major André.

He "fought courageously during the Battle of Bunker Hill, from which he emerged a Colonel."
