Sale 38 Lot 22

Aide de camp to George Washington from June 21, 1776. Scarce A.L.S., 1p. 4to., Cooperstown, May 19, 1804 to Charles and George Webster. Cary is pressed to pay a debt and begs for additional time: "...I now intreat of you as a particular favor, that you will not crowd me at my present unfortunate situation, I have as much as I can bear...there is no danger of you losing your debt...I will make every exertion in my power to pay it...". Apparently Cary's plea worked - a note on verso indicates the loan was extended an additional year. Seal tear at right margin costs a few letters of text, an old tape repair on verso, else very good.
Estimate $ 150-200
