About this Item

The Continental Congress awarded this Revolutionary War patriot and officer and member of the "New York Sons of Liberty" a sword of honor; later he served as sheriff (1784-87, 1791-95) and as mayor (1807-08) of New York City. Signature and title ("Shr'ff")and "Cepi Corpus" ("I have the body") in his hand on verso of a partial partly-printed DS, 1p, 5½" X 2 3/4", New York, NY, 1791 November 29. Very good. Partly-printed portion on recto (with wax-affixed paper seal present and in excellent condition) seems to suggest this is a summons of some sort for a person named Peleg Brown, and holograph docket on verso notes "Mayors Court / Peleg Brown / V. / Saml. Stockwell" with date. Willett signs large and bold below this docket, affirming he has executed the summons. Comes with modern reproduction of a small, handsome steel-engraved engraving of Willett.
