This Handwritten original Manuscript Document is from Rowley, Massachusetts, measuring 6.25” x 7.75” and boldly penned in deep rich brown on period laid paper. This important ledger Document reads at its header: “An Account of the Bounties Paid by the Town of Rowley to the first three years Soldiers in the Massach. Line of the Continental Army.” A scarce military “Bounty” payroll document, recording thirty-four (34) names of soldiers. Each has received 15 Pounds but for two (2) who received 20 Pounds and one (1) at only nine Pounds. Separation along the horizontal centerfold has been repaired on the verso with archival tape. Some trivial paper loss at separation with some chipping at the margins having moderate soiling from actual use. Overall it displays well having a fine, actually used, presentation. Extremely rare and of historical importance. This is the very first such recorded Documentation of American Revolutionary War soldier’s listed by name and their individual paid Continental Army signing “Bounties” being officially accounted we have ever offered.
