Important financier who signed the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and Constitution (1734-1806). Revolutionary War-dated ALS from Robert Morris signed “Willing Morris & Co.,” one page, 7.5 x 9, November 5, 1776. Letter to Michael Earle, in full: "We heard with very great concern of the extream dangerous situation of Mr. Ringgold before his death which we first learnt from your favour of the 29th ult'o and do most sincerely lament him as a loss to his family connection & friends as well as to his country he was young & had a right to expect the enjoyment of many happy years to come. We shall undoubtedly send down the money you requested on his behalf when we can meet a safe opportunity hitherto we have only heard of one by which we sent Mr. Hemsley as much as we thought prudent to risque by one hand no doubt we shall soon meet another yare." Morris adds a brief postscript: "We find there will be some unexpected demands here on Mr. Ringgold's estate respecting which we write Mr. Hemsley." In very good to fine condition, with light toning from prior display, and seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
