About this Item

This obscure Revolutionary War figure is remembered for "Nicholson's Regiment," a militia unit he commanded from New York raised in Quebec from New York soldiers, their task being to help defend Canada; they were formed in 1776 and disbanded late that year. ALS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New York, 1785 March 9. Addressed to Evans Wharry, likely a "Nicholson's Regiment" officer. Very good. Moderate, even age toning. Asks Wharry to take care of a promissory note. In part: ".Capt Black is dayly at me for the amount of the note I gave him last winter on your account. take such measures (either by payment or otherwise) as will releive [sic] me from such applications." Attractive, interesting and uncommon. Comes with large, early 20th century catalogue slip from pioneering autograph dealer Forest H. Sweet of Battle Creek, Michigan. Bookseller Inventory # 38447
