About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Jabez Williams Huntington, Document Signed, ...

Publication Date: 1812

Binding: No Binding

Book Condition: Collectible-Very Good


Document measures 7 1/4 x 9 1/2, on three pages; fourth page has notation regarding travel expenses (for a total cost of $0.81). Small hole in middle of pages affecting some text. Handwriting with much flourish. Huntington (1788-1847) was a Congressman from Connecticut (1829-34) and later a U. S. Senator (1840-47). In this interesting decree, signed by Huntington early in his legal career, the sheriff of New London County is summoned to bring to court one Jonathan Wilkinson of North Stonington for passing a counterfeit bank note. The plaintiff is a James Lanman (1769-1841), also later a U. S. Senator from Connecticut (1819-25). The decree states that the $2.00 bank note is "feigned, false and counterfeit and not worth a farthing". Bookseller Inventory # 5043
