Revolutionary War general (1745-1796) whose daring tactics earned him the nickname 'Mad Anthony.' Autograph endorsement signed "An'ty Wayne, Legionville," one page, 7.75 x 9.25, April 25, 1793. Document from Capt. William Eaton, issued at Legionville on April 25, 1792, in part: "I certify that Silas Goodrich, a private soldier in my company, was the prime and principal detector of the plot for desertion of which Peter Freeman of Captain F. Quion's company was the leader and as much suffered penalty by Ct. Martial on the 15 inst.—That he (Goodrich) was not an accomplice in s'd plot—and that he is consequently entitled to the premium…granted by a General Order for that act of fidelity." Below, Wayne addressed his pay order to President George Washington, "His Excellency The Commander in Chief," in full: "The Paymaster General will make out a Warrant in favor of the above named Silas Goodrich for the sum of ten Dollars as reward for the above mentioned discovery." In very good to fine condition, with ink erosion affecting a couple words of text, and complete silking on the reverse for reinforcement. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
