Connecticut, 1781. Lot of 3 Tax Warrants Issued by the Pay-Table Office in Hartford: 3 Pounds dated December 26th; 10 Pounds dated December 1st; and 8 Pounds also dated December 1st. All have black text with black handwriting. Includes signatures from leading Connecticut figures such as Fenn Wadsworth, William Moseley, with Ralph Pomeroy's signature on the back of all three pieces. The Pay-Table (also known as the Committee of Four) managed Connecticut's military finances during the Revolutionary War. Fenn Wadsworth (1750/51-1785) was a brigade major to General James Wadsworth from 1776 to 1779. He fought in many battles during that time, but his failing health forced him to leave active service. Wadsworth stayed in Connecticut's government, as shown by his membership to the Pay-Table Committee. William Moseley (1755-1824) later would serve in the Connecticut state senate. He was also the Director of the Hartford National Bank from 1797 to 1815. Ralph Pomeroy (1737- 1819) was a paymaster in the Continental Army. He remained involved in state politics, acting as State Controller after the war. All are in Fine-VF condition. (3)
