Connecticut Pay-Table Office, party-printed document signed, [Hartford]. 22 Dec. 1781, 1 page (4-7/8" x 6-1/8"), docketed on reverse; within matted and glazed frame. The Treasurer of Connecticut authorizes payment to “Capt. Amasa Loomis Three Pounds seventeen shillings and four pence” per “Order No. 7050” per docketing. Captain Amasa Loomis (1738-1793) of East Windsor responded to the Lexington Alarm in April 1775, leading his company of the 19th Regiment of Connecticut Militia north to Roxbury, where they participated in the siege of Boston. In 1776, Loomis again responded to a call for troops to defend New York, where he and his company served for two months during the August-October 1776. It is likely that the payment authorized by this document was for reimbursement of expenses during the Lexington Alarm and defense of New York. He is buried in the Edwards Cemetery in South Windsor, Connecticut. CONDITION: Very good, paper bright and ink strong; not examined outside of frame. JLK
