JAMES IRVINE
(1735 - 1819) Revolutionary War major general of Pennsylvania militia, later served as vice president of Pennsylvania. War-date D.S., 1p. legal folio, Philadelphia, July 27, 1782 to WILLIAM MOORE (1735-1793) President of Philadelphia (who pencils a 1782 pass on verso, traced-over). Citizen Martha Robins writes to Moore stating that her daughter is: "...in a poor state of health and wishes to be with me...". She asks that Moore write New Jersey Gov. Livingston to request he allow the lady to pass through the state en route to Pennsylvania. At bottom Irvine, JOHN CONNELLY and JOHN FRANKLIN attest to the family's background: "...[we] know them to be well affected to the cause of the United States of America and know them to have been of the greatest service to the prisoners of years past...". Ink erosion from Franklin's signature affects that of Irvine's, expertly inlaid and overall very good.
Estimate $ 150-200
